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.

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.
