Want to help spread the word? 

The SVSPO has created a variety of sexual violence prevention awareness raising campaigns. These campaigns have included information on consent and where to go for sexual violence supports and services on campus. If you would like more posters, digital assets or other information on how to spread the word, email us at sv_office@sfu.ca and we'll show you how. It takes a community to change our campus culture and prevent sexual violence.
