Shaina Brown
Public Affairs and Communications Manager

Shaina Brown is with the California Coalition Against Sexual Assaualt (CALCASA) and responsible for managing strategic communications and providing analysis on legislative issues related to sexual violence. Shaina has a background in public affairs, media relations and grants management. Shaina joined the movement to end sexual violence in 2009, serving as a volunteer for Jeans 4 Justice, a San Diego based social change organization.

CALCASA was a key partner in passing SB 967, with author Senator Kevin de Leon. SB 967 had three key components: instituting the affirmative consent standard on college campuses, requiring campuses to implement comprehensive prevention programming, and requiring schools to partner with community based organizations. With the support of student activists from across the state, SB 967 was signed by Governor Brown in October 2014, and created a national dialogue around affirmative consent, healthy relationships, and respecting boundaries.
