Pop Culture Hero Coalition was founded in 2013 by Chase Masterson and co-founders Carrie Goldman and Matt Langdon. This amazing organization exists as a support network to stand against bullying, racism, misogyny, cyber-bullying, LGBT-bullying, and other forms of hate by using the phenomenal popularity of media to bring justice and healing.
When asked in an interview what compelled her to get involved, she quoted, "I have spoken to so many fans who have been victims of bullying. I wanted to do something to support pop culture fans who have been bullied — to help them feel seen and heard, to encourage them to celebrate exactly who they are." For all of us self-proclaimed geeks out there, we can likely relate. Being bullied has a way of making you feel alone. Pop Culture Hero Coalition inspires those victims who feel lost to understand that they are strong and perfect just the way they are.
