About Project Consent:
Project Consent is an organization established in 2014 to raise awareness about sexual assault and advocate for survivors of sexual violence. It was founded by Sara Li and reached out 3 million people globally with in-house campaigns, partner collaborations, and extensive social media reach. Project Consent is credited for starting the conversation about consent and rape culture prior to the #MeToo movement and has worked hard to ensure a better future for all.
In 2019, Project Consent disbanded as an active organization, but continues to act as a resource page for allies and survivors alike. Project Consent is, at heart, a network of people who believe there will come a day where no one ever has to feel violated again. They thank you for your support and ongoing fight for justice in today’s world.
Surviving a sexual assault can be traumatizing, draining, and life-changing. You may be feeling an array of different emotions. By telling a friend or family member, you are creating your own support system to get you through this potentially debilitating time. Here are some steps on how you can reach out to a trusted friend or family member.
Surviving an assault can take a lot out of you. You might not know how to react, what to do, or how to act going forward (and that’s natural). Here is a helpful list of things that you can do after an assault. This information can also be used to provide to someone else who has experienced an assault and may not know what to do.
Assault is a difficult topic to talk about. Regardless of your relationship with a person, it’s easy to shy away from these conversations. Being receptive and genuine in your response with the person is imperative. The following ideas offer some advice for how you can best talk to a friend when they tell you about an assault.
