This toolkit, written by Chelsea Corsi and Meaghan Hagerty at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) was developed to support others delivering consent and sexualized violence education. It offers some of their experiences and is meant to be adapted for different contexts.
Taking inspiration from the viral “Tea Consent” video in 2015, Thompson Rivers University (TRU) developed a ‘Consent Tea’ event fashioned after a tea party. It innovatively approaches conversations about consent, sexualized violence, and healthy relationships in a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and survivor-centered way. The Consent Tea has become an annual event and has morphed into an activity-based, peer-led learning opportunity that engages over 100 face-to-face participants each year.
