Senate Bill 967 can make a difference by holding all schools to the same standard in order to protect students from sexual assault. That standard will be one of prevention, training, and justice so that California college campuses can remedy the sexual assault epidemic. This measure shifts the paradigm by implementing an affirmative consent standard, only “yes means yes,” so that victims are not re-victimized by their schools’ disciplinary process.

FACEBOOK EVENT for Tuesday 10:30 am delivery to the Governor’s office.
