Do you love tacos and want to gain informative info on consent and safety in relationships? The The Office of Equity & Inclusion and Not on My Campus AdvoKATS will host the Let’s Taco ‘Bout It event on April 5 to inform students on consent.

The event is part of Sexual Assault Awareness month activities, and will be dedicated to informing students on the true meaning of consent and communicating with your partner.

While students enjoy free tacos the organizations will inform participants on consent, how to get consent, and what is not consent through interactive activities.

College campuses is on the top of the list of the most likely place for sexual assault to occur. The Office of Equity and Inclusion plan to help change that through the discussion.

“Consent is one of those topics that unfortunately come up a lot when we talk about sexual assault, and we see it on the news, so it’s one of the topic we wanted to educate our students about,” said Director of the Office of Equity and Inclusion and Title IX Coordinator Jeanine Bias Nelson. “It’s a program we have done similar before and that students have liked it and so we wanted to continue to push this message of consent so our students know how to communicate effectively with their sexual partners.”

This event will present situations to students and how they can know what is right within a relationship and what isn’t, and give students the opportunity to learn more information on consent. Students will also be educated on how to be active if someone around them is in need at the time of sexual assault.
