Spring 2019 PreventIPV Newsletter: "I Ask" for Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Wednesday, 24 April 2019

"When you want to get close to someone — whether you’re hooking up for the first time or in a long-term relationship — it’s important to know how to ask for consent." – National Sexual Violence Resource Center

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month this April, we are uplifting the National Sexual Violence Resource Center's theme for 2019, "I Ask." Asking for consent is a normal and healthy part of our daily lives, whether we are asking to hold hands, high five, or have sex. Asking for everyday consent is #1Thing that each and every one of us can do to promote safe and healthy relationships.

This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter lifts up prevention initiatives that work to end gender-based violence by promoting a culture of consent. This newsletter also highlights the first of a 7-part series of stories for the Innovation section of the PreventIPV website, as well as three related Featured Youth Engagement Tools.
