Six Ways to Start a Respect Revolution in your community:

Learn Learn about what sexualized violence is and how it affects people. Learn how to help a friend who has been assaulted.

Share Share what you learn about sexualized violence with your friends and family. Be a good friend. Be supportive and non-judgemental. Communicate your sexual limits and desires with your partner. Share your anger about a world where sexual assault happens.

Challenge Challenge gender scripts, labels and the sexual double standard. Dare to be yourself. Question images and ideas in media. Challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and violence by standing up for people’s rights to respect and dignity.

Create Create a world based on respect. Create art, music, poetry, rap, spoken word, websites, and games that educate people about sexual assault. Create sexuality based on mutual trust, consent and respect.

Volunteer Volunteer your time and talents to a cause you believe in. Volunteer to get a group together to raise awareness about sexualized violence and how to stop it. Volunteer to be a designated driver and to party safe.

Donate Donate financially to a cause you believe in. Participate in fundraisers, like our "Triathlon for Compassion". Organize your own fund-raisers.
