SAAM I Ask Campaign
This year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month embraces the importance of consent and respect in daily life with the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s (NSVRC) I Ask campaign. Consent and respect are two themes for prevention that all people, young or old, can and should adopt into their daily activities. The I Ask campaign strives to normalize conversations of consent whether that be asking to hold another person’s hand, give them a hug, share their picture on social media, or engage in sexual activity.
The NSVRC and sexual violence advocates and agencies across the country recognize that a culture of empowered consent is necessary to combat the current climate’s rape culture. Empowered consent begins with normalized consent. Normalized consent starts with active conversation. I Ask aims to be a catalyst for conversation through social media and community/campus events. Join the conversation by going to www.nsvrc.org/saam and using the hashtag #IAsk.
