Who we are
We are the team for Consent Culture Initiative. We are a survivor-led, grass roots group of community creators, project managers and volunteers in the U.S. We see a need to prevent sexual violence from occurring within creative communities and events.
As a group of industry professionals with over 50 years of collective experience in our fields, a hunger for change, a desire to prevent harm from occurring, and a vision of a world centered in transformation, not punishment: our work is cut out for us. Our methods are a promising practice and we are constantly seeking reviews and recommendations to deepen our CQI.
We believe the methods and available structures for discussing and identifying consent are a part of the problem. We hope to change the world, one community at a time, through supporting members while they curate brave creative spaces safety, thus preventing sexual, gendered, and identity based violence.

We do not want, not having, a college education to deter you from reaching out if you want to work with us. Experience is an extremely valuable asset when it comes to work like this. If you have lived experience and feel that you are called to do this work we have various options for you to get involved. Check out our Chapters Program, our volunteer program, or write to us if you have something specific in mind.
CCI is made up of various humans!
