Revocable. Ongoing. Enthusiastic. Voluntary. Unambiguous. These aren't just random adjectives. They're all parts of the definition of consent!
From Tuesday January 17th to Friday January 20th, Bruin Consent Coalition will be hosting our 4th annual Consent Week. We have a week full of events informing you on different aspects of consent and issues on sexual and gender based violence. We will also be handing out resources and free swag, so come out!
