About The Consent Workshop (TCW)
The Consent Workshop (TCW) is a youth led movement deconstructing rape culture through consent education, awareness and provision of resources. It targets students and youths at risk of sexual violence, particularly in the ethnic minority communities where the highest rates of sexual violence occur. The Consent Workshop addresses SDG 5 – gender equality and SDG 16 – peace and justice. TCW is necessary as a first step in reversing the gender based violence that exists in communities while empowering marginalized youths at risk.
