The ConsentIs Campaign
October 26 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The ConsentIs Campaign is from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. at an information table in the Brandt Student Center. Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment (PAVE), a DC-based nonprofit organization that works to prevent sexual assault and heal survivors nationwide, launched a national social media campaign #ConsentIs to raise awareness, shatter the silence of sexual violence and promote the five essentials of consent: verbal, sober, enthusiastic, freely given and consistent. “We live in a cultural climate where cases of sexual assault are recurrent. Far too often these cases go unreported. With easy access to social media, we have an opportunity to educate young people who face these challenges. The #ConsentIs campaign is an interactive approach to spreading awareness of such a serious issue. We want to reduce cases of sexual assault and create a culture of respect,” says Angela Rose, PAVE’s Executive Director. Please join the NJWC by expressing your thoughts on consent.
