Exposure Magazine: Tell me about The Stop Stuff Vanguard Tour event?
Seanne Murray: I am thrilled to present the sexiest and most diverse innovators ever assembled to share their ingenuity, experience and expertise on changing the world. The Stop Stuff Vanguard Tour launches in Los Angeles at Shinola LA Arts located at 825 E. 3rd Street on October 5th from 6 to 8 PM. The Stop Stuff Vanguard celebrates avant-garde innovators.
The Los Angeles panel includes an Ivy League lawyer turned fitness model and activist (Shaka Smith), an award winning motivational speaker (Michael Maitre), a star paraplegic hip hop dancer and advocate from the days of N.W.A. (Auti Angel), an award winning documentarian who’s graced the cover of over 100 men’s fitness magazines (Sebastian Siegel), a former NFL player who wasn’t drafted, but got in on sheer will (Paul Pratt), and invited musical guest (Damon Elliot/Nomad), a multi-platinum award winning music producer, to name a few.
Exposure Magazine: What do you hope the attendees take away from your event?
Seanne Murray: Changing the world is serious, sexy and smart. The Stop Stuff Vanguard Tour is designed to stimulate all the senses. The main ingredient is revealing how incredible it is to participate in the process and how amazing it feels to take action rather than just talk. People will come excited and leave empowered.
Exposure Magazine: What’s Stop Stuff’s mission?
Seanne Murray: Stop Stuff is the first brand created to address gun violence by giving 15% of clothing purchased to non-profits fighting the fight. As the founder, I intend on empowering others to follow my lead in terms of self- actualization and social entrepreneurship. I am really a dream fulfiller. Dream House Blue is the sister organization I’ve put in place for dream fulfillment. We don’t chase dreams, we make them happen.
Exposure Magazine: Is there anything our readers can do to help your cause?
Seanne Murray: Yes, go to stopstuff.com and buy hats, t-shirts, charms, whatever you like. It’s a simple way to take a stand on something so important, particularly coming off of the Vegas shooting. Don’t wait for gun violence or any other atrocity to impact you individually before you take it personally. Stand up and participate in the process now.
