Description: 

Across the country, groups of male students are making their voices heard! More and more men are finding the courage to say “no” to ideas of manhood and relations between the sexes that aren’t good for women and aren’t good for men as well. They’re speaking out against date rape and violence against women. They support gender equality. Some work through residence life or student activities offices, others through women's centers and counseling programs. Some are campus branches of national organizations like MVP, White Ribbon, Men Can Stop Rape, or 1 in 4.
These men face common problems: How to have an impact? How to find positive ways to get their message to other campus men? How to deal with backlash, to work in partnership with women’s groups, to recruit and sustain their groups?

For the first time, campus-based pro-feminist men's groups from across the country are meeting together. To share resources., trade their best ideas, discuss strategies, and simply find out what’s happening on other campuses.
COSTS: Registration: $10 students. $50 other. On campus room & board at reasonable rates.
FUNDING: We encourage you to start checking out funding opportunities on your campus. We hope to have some funds to help a bit with travel costs.

Description: 

The Institute is a 2 ½ day course and is open to team coordinators (leaders) and state and territorial level leaders that coordinate or support local teams responding to sexual violence.The Institute’s primary objective is to build the capacity of team leaders to design and facilitate effective team processes. The team leader plays a key role in a team’s overall development. It is complex, challenging and rewarding work. The social and system improvement teams work towards requires more than knowledge of best practices — it also requires the ability to influence multiple systems and agencies in order to apply that knowledge. The Institute will focus on the skills needed to lead multidisciplinary teams to design, implement, and evaluate their community’sresponse to sexual violence.

Description: 

Why throw a party in honor of consensual sex, you ask? Here's why!

It is necessary to talk about sexual assault and learn more about preventing it. It is necessary to educate the community on the importance of consent. The absence of "no" does not equal "yes." The line between "no" and "yes" is too often blurred by miscommunication or refusal to listen, and worse, the lack of communication has even amde this topic uncomfortable to discuss.

Consent requires an enthusiastic and FREELY GIVEN "YES!" Every. Single. Time.

By having events such as the I <3  Consensual Sex party, targeted specifically to college-aged youth, we intentionally create a public, light-hearted atmosphere to reduce the discomfort surrounding discussions on the otherwise serious topic of sexual assault. We ulitmately hope to create a context in which people can communicate about sex in way that reduces the violence and coercion that often surrounds sexual expression.
