How You Can Help Stop Sexual Violence:

  • Know that sexual contact requires mutual consent.
  • Spread the word that no one deserves to be sexually assaulted, stalked or victimized in any way.
  • 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 or other drugs to engage in sexual activity.
  • Take responsibility for your actions. Avoid alcohol and other drugs.
  • 
Remember “No” means “No!” and “Stop” means “Stop!”

  • Don’t mistake submission or silence for consent.
  • Report incidents of violence (including coercion) to law enforcement and campus authorities.
  • Discuss dating/domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking with friends—speak out against violence and clear up misconceptions.
  • Don’t laugh at sexist jokes or comments.

  • Educate yourself and your friends.

  • Attend an awareness event and use campus resources.
  • Look out for others at parties and bars.

  • Empower victims to tell their stories.
  • 
Offer assistance, options and a sympathetic ear.
