The Summit on Sexual Assault and Consent is a two-day virtual conference that brings together students, faculty, administrators, and parents from high schools across the country to discuss the epidemic of sexual violence facing people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, and identities. To align with local public health guidelines, the 2021 Summit will be held virtually via Zoom. We are excited to bring together schools from across the world for this virtual event! 

School teams register to attend with four students and two teachers, counselors, and/or administrators ($500/team, $95/person). If a school has more than four students interested in attending, schools can register multiple teams. We also provide a track specifically designed for parents, who can register individually ($95 per person).

 

If the cost of the Summit is restrictive for you or for your school, please email us at consentsummit@gds.org  before filling out this registration form.

Even in a virtual setting, we will have counselors available at all times from the DC Rape Crisis Center (DRCC) for those who may encounter some difficulties throughout the day and need a little extra support.
