Voices Against Violence
Upcoming Public Events, Spring 2014

We, as students of the University of Texas at Austin, take sexual violence seriously. The Sexual Violence Prevention Month tree describes our commitment to a comprehensive approach to prevention at UT Austin. An effective model of sexual violence prevention simultaneously works to transform individual behavior, our relationships and campus culture while honoring our multiple and intersecting identities.

The roots of a culture free from sexual violence are also one without any form of oppression. The trunk of the tree represents the need to be aware of campus policies and resources. The branches speak to how we hold each other accountable for everyone's safety. We are empowered to BeVocal against the current culture of sexual violence. Finally, the leaves represent that we, as students, understand and practice consent in our everyday lives. We welcome you to join the conversation and the movement for a campus free from sexual violence. #UTGetsConsent
