Students say…

 “FORCE inspired students to generate these conversations and begin thinking about how to change not only their lives but also the culture that surrounds them.” 
Lindsay, Maryland Institute College of Art

“I learned so much in the workshop today. For the first time I felt comfortable to admit that some of my sexual experiences weren’t consensual, and that wasn’t ok. It was really validating to be part of this.” 
Anonymous, University of Maryland
