OAESV has partnered with the Feminist Activism class in Wright State University’s Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. Through this course, students volunteer with OAESV and complete group projects aimed at ending power-based violence and supporting survivors.
See below for descriptions of each project and ways that you can join the efforts.
The Greater Extent of Consent
By Maddie A., Aaleeyah D., Dustin H., Madison P., and Calla P.
This project is a social media awareness and discussion effort aimed at WSU students. The group is holding conversations in various formats on several social media platforms in an attempt to inform and empower the community at large, and to help change the narrative surrounding sexual assault by focusing on consent education and conversation.

Artivism: Honoring Survivorship Through Art
By Ami E., Jordan E., Drake H., Morgan L., and Ashleigh T.
This project honors survivors and, with the request to #EmbraceYourVoice through art, follows the “artivism” of Chicano artists. The group is inviting all artists, creators, and survivors to share their work as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (submission form coming soon).
The art will begin being shared on April 6th on their Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/activismwithart/
Supporting WSU Students’ Access to Resources
By Autumn B., Misty G., Lesly H., and Sydney M.
This group is working with Corrie Pleska, the Survivor Advocate and Case Manager at WSU, and other staff from the Office of Student Support Services and Office of LGBTQA Affairs on campus. The students will be assisting in transferring the campus’s SAAM events to virtual programming, such as the What Were You Wearing exhibit and a resource web page.
