SUPPORT HB1560:

CONSENT EDUCATION FOR MARYLAND STUDENTS

Don't ignore the subtext It's On Us PSA: Autocorrect 1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men experience rape during their time at college. If we're serious about changing this alarming statistic and preventing sexual violence in our communities, education about consent needs to begin before college.  This year, Delegate Ariana Kelly and Delegate Marice Morales are the lead sponsors for HB1560, which would require that age-appropriate consent education curriculum be taught to grades 5 and higher in Maryland public schools. Our students need to know what consent is, and why it matters. Without consent, it's sexual assault. Please call the members of the Senate Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee and encourage them to SUPPORT HB1560-Consent Education Bill. Contact information is below.

Thank you for your activism and support for sexual assault survivors. We must continue to speak up and speak out. Lisae C.
