Regrann from @strengthunitedcsun -  Sexual consent is a CHOICE you make without pressure, coercion, or manipulation.
Consent should ALWAYS be clearly communicated.
Consent is REVERSIBLE and can be withdrawn at any time.
Being in a relationship does NOT give automatic consent.
Silence is NOT consent.
Consent needs to happen EVERY TIME.
For more information about consent visit www.rainn.org

For today’s #30daysofsaam we want to reflect on radical self love and acceptance. ——————————-
“Humans are varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.” - Sonya Renee Taylor, The Body is Not an Apology @thebodyisnotanapology #revolutionaryloveretreat #genderjusticesu #radicalselflove

Raymond Firth, 39, was sentenced Monday to three years and eight months in prison. He pleaded guilty March 19 to two counts of sexual battery and one count of false imprisonment, all felonies. The charges relate to three young victims in his third-grade classrooms during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 school years. 
Firth will have to register as a sex offender for life. Had he been convicted of all the charges he faced originally, he could have been sentenced to up to 18 years in prison. 
Vista Superior Court Judge Daniel Goldstein said during the hearing that he approved of the deal struck between the attorneys in the case because it meant Firth would go to prison without requiring the victims to testify at trial. “You violated such a precious position of trust that a teacher has with students,” Goldstein said, adding that Firth’s actions will likely cause his victims to question their self-worth for the rest of their lives.

The pain of trauma can cause you to question everything in life. The world turns upside down. Some days it may feel like there is no hope to ever feel happy again. I promise you there is hope. The pain may not cease immediately but there are happy days to come. <3

My goal is to train 1 Million people in my lifetime. I am hoping that by becoming a non-profit I can raise the funds to do so. So far I have been self-funded.

I cannot solve his problem and I cannot recover for him. I really want to some days. I want to explain, convince, lecture, and control him into making good choices. I have learned through this experience that this doesn't work and it makes things worse. The most loving thing I can do for him is allow him to make his own choices and keep myself safe with boundaries. Only he can decide if he wants to change.

"I put up the fight of my life, but I was totally outmatched. The universe knew exactly how to use vulnerability and uncertainty to bring down this perfectionistic shame researcher:  a huge, unexpected wallop of professional failure, one devastating and public humiliation after the next, a showdown with God, strained connections with my family, anxiety so severe that I started having dizzy spells, depression, fear, and the thing that pissed me off the most – grace. No matter how hard or far I fell, grace was there to pick me up, dust me off, and shove me back in for some more.⠀
⠀
It was an ugly street fight and, even though I got my ass kicked, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. There was a significant amount of pain and loss, but something amazing happened along the way – I discovered me. The real me. The messy, imperfect, brave, scared, creative, loving, compassionate, wholehearted me."⠀

Positivity Post of the day🧡

You all mean so much to the world. Each step you take, each choice you make- they all affect people. You are part of something wonderful, beautiful, and worth it. Do not EVER let someone tell you that you aren't worth your life, because your heart beats for a reason.

Quick PSA: only 1.8% of reported sexual assaults are later found false. That is 1 in millions. However, just because of this fact, thousands of rape kids are 'justified' to have been left in the dust. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Somedays we feel like everything will end. Somedays we feel like nothing will ever start- somedays you simply feel stuck. Remember that you are here for a reason. Your life is just beginning- you have potential and hope to do great things in your life, and don't ever think that your time is over until you've accomplished what you've set out to do.

April. #saam 2018 was an amazing & inspiring month of awareness! However, @nsvrc reminds us, with this powerful message that #violenceprevention education; #supportingsurvivors through inclusive #adovacy and continuing our efforts to end things like victim blaming ...remain year round priority! ⭐️🙌🏻#30daysofsaam #courage #changetheculture #nuscholars

A recap of our post for Sexual Assault Awareness Month #saam2018 #30daysofsaam
After hearing about all these statistics around sexual assault, are you ready to do something? It doesn't have to be big. You can help even while you're binge watching Netflix. It's as simple as pulling out your phone in between episodes and tweeting at your state senator. Thank you @bridieinbrooklyn for appearing on the podcast and sharing these great tips. #takeaction

April was a hard month. Much more challenging than I expected, and that unfortunate led me to falter in fulfilling my commitment to #SAAM this year. This is ok since I am finding ways that my work as a scholar can function as another realm of support for survivors. It doesn't diminish the fact I wish I had done more then, but these don't end with the 30th of April. ✨✨✨So I'm taking this as a moment to push this movement further and dedicate the year to come to Sexual Assault Awareness, and will be calling it #SAAYToSAAM. I already had some long-standing projects that would need more than a month to see real success so this will hopefully give them the platform to flourish. I'll hopefully be announcing them sooner rather than later; can't quite commit given that April taught me much with regard to that.✨✨✨ But I will ask that if this cause is important to you or anyone you know, use your voice and share what you want to #SAAYToSAAM. #SAAY #StayLoud #StayVocal #TealRibbon #AwareAllYear

It is the last day of the #30DaysofSAAM! We are sad to be finished but we hope you will all stick with us and watch for our many upcoming social media posts! Thanks for hanging on with us through this month!

As our final post we were given the prompt "My hope for the future..." so here is mine and I hope you will all be willing to share yours as well. 
My hope for the future is that all human beings will have their necessities met; clean drinking water, safe and sturdy shelter, protective clothing and nutritious food. But beyond that, I hope everyone has the love and affection they need to grow into confident people. I hope everyone has respect for themselves and others. I hope every person is safe from harm; be it emotional, physical or any of the other forms we know that abuse can take. 
I hope each person has so much on their own plate that they are able to give back to others, the environment, and the world as a whole. 
What a dream world we could create. 💭❤️

April was Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. “Sexual violence thrives when it is not taken seriously and victim blaming goes unchecked. Use your voice to prevent it.” - @nsvrc 
Brothers and sisters, your voice has power. Use it. Let’s continue to keep the conversation going. #BreakTheSilence 🖤
“Rape can happen to anyone at any time, no matter how cautious they are. Advising people to follow ‘guidelines’ to avoid being sexually assaulted puts the responsibility of the assault on the victim. Instead, it is the responsibility of the assailant to avoid sexually assaulting others, and as a community, it is our responsibility to understand and promote the fact that sexual assault is never trivial, excusable or deserved, and it is never the victim’s fault.” - @scstsm 🖤
Facts: • Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted, and 60% of sexual assaults are unreported to the police. • 14% of women are victims of rape committed by their husband. • When intoxicated, an individual cannot legally consent to sexual activity. •67% of sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim. • 1 in 6 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. - @scstsm • 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before age 16. • Fewer than 5% of completed or attempted rapes against college women were reported to law enforcement. Among college women, 9 out of 10 victims of sexual assault knew the person who sexually assaulted them. •Women have a 50% to 95% chance of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being raped. - @nsvrc 🖤

Tonight I completed @mirror.memoirs interview number 60!!! This is the last interview I plan to personally record. It was an epic conversation for two and a half hours, with my dear friend and fierce LA-based advocate Liliana Perez. And this is the culmination of the first interview phase of this project - the first interview was recorded in September 2016. And I am very tired. But satisfied. And eager to share our collective stories with all of you. Soon. ❤✊🏾

For our last #30daysofsaam post we invite you to cultivate a radical imagination to decolonize to shift the way we see & cope with trauma. —————————————————-
“Radical imagination is reenvisioning your existence on this land without the inherited privileges of conquest and empire. It is accepting the fact of a meaningful prior Indigenous presence, and taking action to support struggles not only of social and economic justice, but political justice for Indigenous nations as well.” -Taiaiake Alfred #genderjusticesu #decolonize

Last quote everyone! Last day of sexual assault awareness month! In the spirit of this, I chose "as if I should just accept it" to be the last quote.
Sexual assault awareness month is almost over, but that doesn't mean the work is done. Rape and sexual assault is so prevalent in our culture: it's everywhere. It's on the bus and in your school and at your work and in your home. It's in music and movies and in our own heads because we are constantly exposed to our toxic culture saying that sexual assault is okay. When my mom told me "that happens" after I shared my story, I knew that was fucked up. I knew it wasn't okay. And this, in some ways, is a sign that we're getting better.
 My grandma used to tell my mom "sometimes you have to do things you don't want to as a wife" and it was normal, it was accepted. But it isn't anymore, people are fighting back and sharing their stories, AND IT'S WORKING. Years ago no one would listen to a story like mine. And there are still people like that, but the majority of people I talked to weren't. They were kind and supportive.
The work isn't done yet, and it's easy to give up because it seems like the world will never change, but it already has. It just has more to go. 
This performance was exhausting and both labor and emotionally taxing. I'm not sure how good of a job I did, because of I'm not good at networking, but I think I did some good. I turned the emotional pain into something that benefited people, which is all I ever wanted. Still, I'm happy to be able to wear colors again.
