    Walk the Talk flyer

    Consent is the free, informed, and continued mutual agreement to participate in an activity, especially sex. But what does that look like in everyday life? What if someone says that you or a friend broke their consent? Are you practicing consent skills in all of your relationships? Do you know what to do if you think you are witnessing sexual violence?

    Join over a dozen campus, student and community organizations for an afternoon of 15 minute drop-in workshops focused on helping you build your toolbox for practicing consent in day-to-day life.
