Our friends at 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.

Consent Is Campaign“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.

A survey released this week by the Association of American Universities Campus shows that 1 in 4 college women say they have been physically forced or threatened with force into nonconsensual sexual contact, highlighting the need to educate on the importance of consent in every relationship.

To join the campaign, you can order your own soft elastic, gender neutral, custom “Consent Is____” wristband here or simply share what consent means to you on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #ConsentIs.
