WE WILL BE MEETING VIRTUALLY OVER ZOOM THROUGH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

ANYONE IN THURSTON COUNTY, WA IS WELCOME TO JOIN SPEAK!

Are you interested in learning how to challenge cultural norms regarding sexual and domestic violence with your peers?


SPEAK encourages youth to be peer educators and advocates in their own communities and schools, and to give them the language and tools to create sustainable and healthy relationships in their own lives. This group of high school-aged youth meets once weekly to challenge and deconstruct the root causes of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Throughout the year the youth explore topics and discuss populations that are highly impacted by violence or concepts that reinforce the normalization of violence. SPEAK members also have the opportunity during the school year to present to their peers at local high schools with the Youth Education Specialist on healthy relationships, boundaries, and consent.

Explore Topics Like:

Healthy Relationships
Gender Roles
Boundaries
Consent
Media Literacy
Reproductive Justice
Sexuality
