Getting Involved

Advocates for a Student Culture of Consent (ASCC)

Check out Advocates for a Student Culture of Consent (ASCC — pronounced “ask”), an intersectional feminist, activist collective that is passionate about ending sexual violence. ASCC is an LSPIRG community research and action group. It's important to us that you know many of us are survivors of sexual and gendered violence, we are sex-positive, anti-colonial, anti-oppressive and pro-choice, we support sex workers, and we're allies and members of the queer and trans communities.

Male Allies

Get involved with Male Allies, which works to engage boys and men, with their unique ability and responsibility, in ending systemic and everyday forms of gender-based violence. They do this through programming that provides alternative narratives of masculinity, opportunity for self-reflection and dialogue, and challenges harmful language and behaviour.

The Office of Dispute Resolution and Sexual Violence Support operates on the sacred and traditional land of the Anishnawbe, Haudenosaunee, and Neutral peoples.
