What can I do to help stop sexual violence?

  • Sexual contact requires mutual consent. A person intoxicated with alcohol or drugs is not capable of giving consent.
  • Don't engage in any behavior that may be considered dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or any other form of violence.
  • Never use force, coercion, threats, alcohol/drugs to engage in sexual activity.
  • "No" means "NO!" "Stop" means "STOP"!
  • Confront friends who make excuses for other people's abusive behavior. Tell them that you are concerned.
  • Stop someone if you observe them taking advantage of someone else.
  • If your friend is intoxicated and in unsafe situation, remove them from the situation and get them somewhere safe.
