I believe that EVERYONE needs to be informed of all these topics at a young age/in high school. There is a ton of information that was unknown, shocking, and unbelievable. If everyone that would present these topics had methods to make the listener pay attention, I think sexual assault (and such topics) would be greatly decreased in encounters, get a higher amount of reporting if they were to still happen.

There is also a ton of information that I had NO idea qualified as sexual assault…

My most rewarding experience volunteering with SPAN has been working with the Peers Building Justice Training Institute. I am so inspired by the enthusiasm, creativity and commitment our campus organizers show toward better understanding social justice issues and creating change through activism.​

If PBJ had endless resources, I would want our curriculum to be a required course in all high schools. All students in america (nay,the world!) would take math, science, language arts, and social justice! The next generation of students would create a world where every single person understands privilege, healthy relationships, gender, and consent.

this group will be one of my favorite memories from high school. Thank you Amanda and Renee for inspiring me to help others and express my activism through art.

I was able to do a tremendous amount of self reflection and growth through Peers Building Justice this year.
