Check Yes or No Consent
I know many of you have already read and even shared Sarah Ross’ article Check Yes or No Consent published in yesterday’s Planet JH.
I believe Sarah’s article is courageous, poignant, generous, and loving—that it’s essential reading for those of us in the valley who have children, are attached to young adults, are parents, grandparents, or anyone with a beating heart who wants to make a love-spreading difference in our valley. If you haven’t read Sarah’s article, I hope you will take the time in the next 24 hours to read it. After you read it, I hope you will plan to discuss it with others who live here and love this place we’re so fortunate to call home.
In order to facilitate discussion and to continue the dialogue around the prevention of gender-based violence here and beyond, I’ve asked Sarah to join me in a conversation in the coming weeks. She has graciously and generously accepted, and I’ll reach out with a date and time as soon as we are able to set one. I hope you’ll come and join that conversation, too.
