What is Senate Bill 967?

SB 967 requires all colleges taking student financial aid funding from the state of California to agree that silence or lack of resistance does not imply a green light for sexual conduct, and that drunkenness is not an acceptable defense in campus sexual assaults. Instead consent must be explicitly provided prior to a sexual encounter.

Why change the law?

Many institutions’ responses to sexual abuse on campus are under suspicion for being inadequate. The apparent failure of so many colleges and universities to prevent and mitigate the significant number of sexual assaults that take place on campuses indicates a larger issue, one that SB 967 hopes to curb using campus codes of conduct.

What's Wrong with No Means No?

No Means No puts people, predominantly women, in the position of having to constantly police themselves to ensure they are in no way, shape, form, or fashion giving the hint of passive consent.
