"Yes Means Yes" California Law Regarding Student Safety & Sexual Violence

"Yes Means Yes" 

California law requires that state institutions adopt and implement written procedures or protocols to ensure that students, faculty, and staff who are victims of sexual assault on the grounds or facilities of their institutions receive treatment and information, including a description of on-campus and off-campus resources. Policies should adopt an "affirmative consent standard" to determine whether consent was given by both parties to sexual activity.

Consent

Consent - Consent is based on choice. Consent is active not passive. Consent is possible only when there is equal power. Giving in because of fear is not consent. Going along with something because of fear is not consent. Going along with something because of wanting to fit in with the group, being deceived, or feeling bad is not consent. Being verbally, emotionally, psychologically, or physically pressured into any kind of sexual activity is not consent.
