Check out the Voicing our Values: Ending Sexual Violence video series, featuring MacEwan students, staff, faculty and alumni. They will reflect on the core values and what it means to build healthy relationships, resilient communities and a just society. Videos will be published throughout the week on Facebook and Twitter.
Join the Voicing Our Values campaign
We want to hear from you why the core values of building healthy relationships matter! Here's how to participate.
Pick one core value: consent, respect, support, sex-positivity, empathy or courage.
Take a photo with a sign that tells us why it’s important for ending sexual violence. The only guideline is that your sign begins with the word you are reflecting on. For example, “Consent is important for ending sexual violence because...” or “Respect matters because....”
“We want to build a community where everyone who has experienced sexual violence can feel heard, believed, accepted and valued.”
— Meagan Simon, sexual violence response coordinator
