04 Dec CANES CONSENT
Canes Consent started in December 2013. It grew out of necessity as more and more students disclosed to me their stories of sexual assault. I felt it was essential to have a campus wide conversation about college sexual assault. At Canes Consent we set up in the center of campus and had TED-style speakers from community organizations fighting sexual assault, faculty, Counseling Center representatives, University of Miami police and students. We also had a DJ and free pizza, cupcakes and t-shirts. We distributed facts about sexual assault as well as condoms. And we raised money for Kristi House, a shelter for sexually abused children. The inaugural Canes Consent caught the attention of Huffington Post.
Below are photos from the event.
