2022 Parent Track

As a companion to the Summit's student-focused sessions, the Parent Track helps parents to explore the issue through their unique lens as caregivers and trusted adults in the lives of their children. From learning about the issue itself to exploring its complexities, parents will leave the Summit with the tools to have difficult conversations, understand the importance of consent, and learn how to provide support to teenage survivors. 


We are especially grateful to I Have The Right To for their partnership in developing the Parent Track.


Please email Bobby Asher ( if you have any questions about the Parent Track.

About the Film:

Roll Red Roll is a true-crime documentary that follows the story of a pre-season football party in small-town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place: the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered online by crime blogger Alex Goddard that provoked the most powerful questions about the case, and about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, Roll Red Roll uncovers the engrained rape culture at the heart of the incident, acting as a cautionary tale about what can happen when teenage social media bullying runs rampant and adults look the other way. The film unflinchingly asks: “why didn’t anyone stop it?”

About Sexual Citizens

Sexual Citizens transforms how we understand and address sexual assault. Through intimate portraits of life and sex among today’s college students, Jennifer S. Hirsch and Shamus Khan present an entirely new way to understand sexual assault. Their insights transcending current debates about consent, predators in a “hunting ground,” or the dangers of hooking up.


Sexual Citizens reveals the social ecosystem that makes sexual assault a predictable element of life on a college campus. The powerful concepts of sexual projects, sexual citizenship, and sexual geographies, provide a new language for understanding the forces that shape young people’s sexual relationships. The result transforms our understanding of sexual assault and provides a new roadmap for how to address it.
