This is a yearly event spaced out over a week in February where organisations up and down the UK organise activities raising awareness and campaigning against sexual violence.
The week aims to generate discussion among the general public, statutory bodies and third sector organisations about how sexual abuse and sexual violence is not ok. It aims to empower victims and send out a clear message that the UK collectively will be saying ‘It’s Not Ok’.
In 2020, we attended the Light up the Night Survivors March in London and held free consent training at local high schools as part of our week of action. We also pushed the #itsnotok campaign across all of our social media.
This year we will be attending the Light up the Night Survivors March, this time across Millennium Bridge, and we are again holding free consent training at local high schools.
Keep track of the #itsnotok hashtag on social media to take part in Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week 2021!
