Sexual Violence Prevention

Sexual Violence Prevention Circle Logo

Sexual Violence Prevention at HPW:

Our goal is to create a healthy and respectful campus culture that does not tolerate violence.

We do this by:

  • fostering a culture of consent
  • promoting healthy relationships and healthy relationships skills  
  • increasing capacity of our communities to be active bystanders to disrupt rape culture

Sexual Violence Prevention Program:

Thinking of You is a monthly outreach activity that aims to promote a culture of care by providing a safe space peers to create messages of support through art. We also provide free information about resources available on and off campus.

Sexual Violence Prevention Workshops & Discussions:

Attend an Open Workshop: Health Promotion & Wellness offers a variety of open workshops each semester. Feel free to drop-in to any workshop.

Request a Workshop: Health Promotion & Wellness provides free workshops to the SF State Community. Please submit a request at least three weeks in advance of the date requested

Learn how consent, power, healthy relationships, and collective action influence how we can change culture to prevent campus sexual violence. Plus, get information about campus resources and how to support survivors.

What does it mean to get full, continuous, and enthusiastic consent? Learn the basics of consent, what you ought to consider before moving forward, and how to make consent conversations flow smoothly.

Learn what healthy boundaries look like, how to set your own, how to be more aware of your partner(s)’ potential boundaries, and how to include boundaries in consent conversations to create healthier relationships and a great sex life.

What should you do when someone says no to you? No means no, so how do you get unstuck from the uncomfortable feeling of receiving a “no?” Being told no can bring up a lot of discomfort - this workshop gives you the skills to move on and respect someone else’s boundaries.

Learn how you can better support friends and loved ones who have survived violence by using interpersonal and communication skills in a trauma-informed way. Join us in fostering a culture of care.

This is a non-confidential space for folks who support survivors. If you are a survivor of sexual/domestic violence and are looking for confidential support and resources for healing, please contact The SAFE Place at (415) 338-2208.
