Affirmative consent, or the affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity from both partners, reduces ambiguity in sexual situations. This panel will discuss California's affirmative consent law, highlighting its goals and limits for promoting a culture of respect on campus, and also probe into how affirmative consent is implemented on campuses and how students' understand its meaning. Panelists will represent legal, research, and activist perspectives. 

This event kicks off the Clayman Institute's 18-month series, "Breaking the Culture of Sexual Assault", where we will dig deeper into this issue and uncover the underlying causes and engage in a community conversation on potential solutions. Click here for more information on the series.
