The Campus Conversation: #MeToo, Consent, and Campus Culture

The #MeToo movement has changed our culture — starkly reflecting the persistence of sexual assault and harassment in the U.S. This presentation will focus on broader issues raised by the movement as well as questions more specific to college campuses. Please come with questions for a panel of experts featuring FRI advisory board members Rana Jaleel and Dawn Sumner:
