Sexual Assault Definition

Sexual Assault is any unwanted touching, fondling, groping of sexual body parts or penetration (oral, digital, vaginal, anal).

Sexual Violence Awareness

Make it your mission to get permission. Each partner needs to make an agreement to become intimate.

  • An intoxicated "yes" isn't considered consent.
  • It's not up to ONE person to be intimate or not. You can change your mind.
  • The absence of NO is not consent. A clear, concise YES equals consent.
  • Be honest when communicating your feelings.

Always be aware of where your friends are and stick together.

Don't leave an intoxicated person alone or with another person.

Tell a victim it was not their fault. No one deserves to be a victim of a crime.

Listen to victims and connect them with community resources (medical, emotional, legal).
