I’m Dallas Jessup and I’m Calling All Heroes Ages 7 to 24: your country and the world need you. I used to think I was unique as a kid who created a non-profit which grew into 43 countries. My photo was on Doritos bags, the big screen at Times Square in New York, and I get to hang out with celebrities but it turns out I’m just one of a thousand kids who are saving the world in a hundred ways and we’re seeing thousands of other kids join us on the frontlines of youth activism every month.

CNN Hero Dallas Jessup knows how to change the world. In 3 years she grew a community service project into the non-profit Just Yell Fire, which put her at the head of a Million Girl Revolution across 44 countries.
A black belt martial artist, street fighting instructor, and honor student, she was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame for Caring Americans. She was recognized for her worldwide advocacy against the sexual assault and abduction of girls and young women.
She travels about 10,000 miles per month speaking at women’s conferences, law enforcement events, colleges, and high schools. Recent engagements have included keynoting the national Mensa Conference, FBI National Academy, 10 colleges in rural India and a training lecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The Just Yell Fire film she wrote, produced and starred in along with appearances by LOST stars Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly was one of the most downloaded production-length films worldwide in 2007. The film empowers girls with a Dating Bill of Rights, safety tips designed for the lifestyle of teens, and street fighting tips so a girl can get away from an attacker every time.
Dallas was awarded the President’s Youth Service award under President Bush and her new book Young Revolutionaries Who Rock, An Insider’s Guide to Saving the World One Revolution at a Time (available at suttonhart.com) has been called a Groundbreaking Call for Youth Activism echoing President Obama’s Call to Service.
She appears regularly in the national media including People Magazine, the Today Show, Good Morning America, USA Today and the rest but she is most energized when connecting directly with the standing room only audiences which typically greet her speaking and training events.
Dallas lives in Vancouver, Washington with her parents.
