A Community Thrives (ACT) part of the USA TODAY NETWORK enables community members to act on ideas that improve the people, organizations, government, and businesses around them by equipping them with the resources they need to thrive.
Our founder and CEO Catherine Wyatt-Morley developed “Operation Panty Power” to empower women using an out of the box method while getting the true message across. Operation Panty Power (O.P.P) is a campaign to empower women! Our purpose is to distribute new unworn panties to women 18 years of age and older. Each panty distributed is accompanied by an educational message that encourages protection and empowerment.
