OVERVIEW

Our mission is to make our campus safer by providing judgment-free consent education and training in order to fight rape culture on campus. From condoms to consent training, we do this in a number of ways including poster and media campaigns, workshops and training, safer sex packets, tabling with free swag, and much more!

I ♥ Consent is a joint campaign operated by the Capilano Students’ Union and Capilano University’s support & wellness department.

What We Do

Throughout the year, the I ♥ Consent campaign will be engaging students on the topic of sexualized violence and holding workshops to promote consent on campus. We are also calling on all university community members to take a stand and pledge their commitment to practicing and promoting consent, challenging rape culture and supporting survivors.

If you are interested in getting more involved, get in touch with one of the contacts in the sidebar.
