You Can Help End Sexual Violence

While it may seem overwhelming to tackle a problem as pervasive as sexual violence, we can all make a difference by being aware of how we may contribute to sexual violence and how to play an active role in prevention.

Here are some good places to start:

  • Seek and respect consent
  • Think twice about making sexualized jokes or saying things that trivialize sexual violence.
  • Treat people with respect and dignity.
  • Be an ally.
  • Support survivors and do not blame victims.
  • When you see sexual violence happening, say something (if you feel safe to do so).
  • Learn what privilege is and how it contributes to the normalization of sexual violence.
