(*Trigger warning:The video I posted addresses issues such as rape and violence)
Something I am very passionate about is fostering emotional literacy in both girls and boys. I believe beginning to talk about the idea of consent is important very early on. According to the Dept. of Justice (2014), there are on average 89,000 reported cases of rape every year in the U.S. alone (U.S. Bureau of Justice, 2014, CDC). To call this wildly unacceptable would be an understatement. This is an atrocity in our country that needs to be changed.
