Affirmative Consent Project Mention From the Article:
'The Affirmative Consent Project is another resource aimed to educate people about sexual assault.
Alison Morano, co-founder of the Affirmative Consent Project, said it is an umbrella organization that raises awareness and offers all kinds of information and resources, which has a 2,000-page-deep website and a policy report outline of more than 500 schools.
“I’m a big believer in showing everybody their resources,” Morano said.
Morano said the problem is so many colleges hid that anything bad would happen on their campuses because they feared people would not want to go there or donors would not want to support the college.
However, Morano said people are now talking about it and not hiding it anymore.
She said schools are addressing it and claiming responsibility, instead of sweeping it under the rug.
The Affirmative Consent Project also offers consent kits, which students can use as guides on how to have discussions about affirmative consent and saying yes to each other and being responsible.
Morano said the Affirmative Consent Project has a campus ambassador program, which encourages students to organize on their campuses. '
