Stop Sexual Violence

What You Can Do To Help Stop Sexual Violence

  • Sexual contact requires mutual consent. An incapacitated person (for example, a person who is intoxicated by drugs or alcohol) is incapable of giving consent.
  • 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” mean “No!” and “stop” means “Stop!”
  • 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 mistake submission or silence for consent.
