April is Sexual Assault Awareness (and Prevention) Month. This year’s theme was I Ask, which centers on consent education—an important topic to Dr. Alexander as highlighted in her TEDxMileHigh talk.
For SAAM, Dr. Alexander was interviewed for the Life As She Knows It—a podcast co-hosted by her TEDxMileHigh colleague Kimberly Corban! You can listen to the podcast here or via your favorite podcast platforms. Additionally, check out Kimberly’s important TEDxMileHigh talk on sexual violence here.
In the last few weeks of the legislative session, Colorado HB 1032 concerning comprehensive sex education and consent education still needs to pass through the Senate. Dr. Alexander headed down to the Capitol with the ACLU of Colorado for Sex Education Visibility Day to promote the importance of this bill and speak with state legislators.
Finally, Dr. Alexander headed to Fort Collins, Colorado to the inaugural Northern Colorado Diversity Conference to give two workshops on healthy relationships. She had a great audiences of teens throughout the area who engaged in conversations surrounding relationship violence and bystander intervention needs.
