Our consent workshops run at least once a month from September to April. The workshop is two hours long and will be held at the University of Victoria. They are free of charge, open to students and community members, and have a no late-comer policy.
Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. When you are asking for help about an issue that might feel really private, confusing and/or embarrassing, it is important to get support that is judgemental, without pressure, and informed.

Recently there have been posters put up on campus expressing racist, anti-Jewish, white supremacist messages. Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. There is a long history of racist, anti-Jewish, white supremacist graffiti and postering both on the UVic campus and in the wider community. We understand that extremist views such as those on the posters that just went up...
On November 8th and 9th, UVic undergraduate students have the chance to vote for an increase in financial support to the Anti-Violence Project.
