STOPit Supporter, Hideki Matsui, alongside STOPit Japan’s CEO, Daizaburo Taniyama, are leading the Stand By You project which focuses on eradicating bullying in Japan through messages of well-known athletes, creators, and artists.
The Stand By You project will be releasing content over the next few months and include messages from other globally influential people via YouTube here.
In 2018, Hideki joined longtime STOPit supporter, Derek Jeter (Turn2Foundation), in publicly advocating STOPit and its mission of empowering people to speak up through anonymous reporting.
“Now it is time for me to support others who are having a hard time. STOPit can provide the means through which to help those suffering because of bullying. That’s why I support STOPit. We cannot forgive bullying. Be brave and please take a stand against bullying along with me,” Hideki said in a previous statement.
