Request a Workshop with The Movement

Join the Movement in raising awareness of Interpersonal Violence by hosting a workshop for your student group, organization, class, or residence hall. It takes ALL of us.

Consent 101 (1 hour)
Join the Movement Peer Educators in an interactive, in-depth conversation focused on consent. Participants will learn what consent may look or sound like, and what it is not. This workshop also creates space for participants and peer educators to discuss how to navigate real-life scenarios in which giving or obtaining consent may be complicated.

Healthy Relationships 101 (1 hour)
Join the Movement Peer Educators as they provide participants with introductory information regarding healthy relationships. Participants will recognize the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships, know that healthy relationships are attainable and become aware of resources available in regards to relationship violence.

Bystander Behavior 101 (1 hour)
Join the Movement Peer Educators to connect to YOUR role as a bystander and identify ways that YOU can intervene to make our community a safer place given the obstacles students face.

The Movement matters to me because our educational programs and events cultivate an environment where everyone can feel safe and respected.

The Movement has given me knowledge, empathy, and social- and self-awareness. This is so powerful for students affected by IPV.

The Movement gave me a community of peers dedicated to ending IPV on campus. Together, we create a network of survivors, increase awareness, and connect folks to resources all over campus.

Join The Movement

By joining The Movement Peer Educators you will build strong relationships, become part of a passionate and dedicated community, learn dialogue skills to address difficult conversations, and become a leader on campus dedicated to ending interpersonal violence.We table around campus to spread awareness about IPV and Women’s Center resources, present information to classes, and host events throughout the year.

The Movement Peer Educators are required to participate in weekly gatherings on Monday evenings from 6 – 7 p.m.  and attend campus awareness-raising events related to shifting campus culture around consent, healthy relationships, and IPV.  After completing a series of trainings to be a Peer Educator, you can apply to become a Facilitator.

Note for Survivors

If you have experienced interpersonal violence, joining The Movement may be an empowering experience for you. It may also be triggering. Please keep this in mind as you apply to determine if engaging with The Movement is the best decision for you at this time. There is absolutely no need to disclose any prior experience of interpersonal violence. However, if you do, please note that the individuals collecting these applications are responsible employees. That means they have an obligation to report all disclosures of interpersonal violence to NC State University. If you disclose incident(s) of sexual violence (which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, stalking, and relationship violence) involving yourself, or any members of the NC State community, we have an obligation to report that to the NC State University Title IX Coordinator. After a report is made they will reach out with an email offering resources and a chance to meet, which you have the right to accept or decline.
