Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted and over 80% of victims are perpetrated by someone they know

Stressing the importance of Sexual Assault Awareness and consent is so vital because it allows a victim to be heard and have a voice. On September 28th , Center for Career and Technology Education hosted their Consent and Sexual Assault Awareness presentation with speakers from Center Against Sexual & Family Violence. HOSA members learned consent is one way we can all maintain healthy relationships and make sure everyone feels safe, comfortable, and respected. We must make sure consent is expressed verbally or through non-verbal cues, such as positive body language like smiling, maintaining eye contact, and nodding. A “maybe” is never a “yes”! CCTE HOSA is taking a big step in bringing awareness to Sexual Assault as they move forward. They are eager and ready to educate others on consent in their community
