Response to Open Letter from Tufts Administration

Thank you to everyone who has signed or shared our Open Letter on Institutional & Policy Reform in the past few weeks. A week ago, members of the Tufts administration directly addressed in the Letter sent the seven initial signatories a response, and we felt that we should share it openly in the spirit of transparency and open conversation. We apologize for the delay. If you would like anything to be included in the response we send, please leave a comment here, or email asaptufts@gmail.com or consentculturenetwork@gmail.com. Thank you!

Open Letter

Members of ASAP, the Consent Culture Network, and other concerned students recently submitted an Open Letter to various members of the Tufts administration. We invite the Tufts community at large to check out what we’ve been doing and participate in the effort.

Our overview op-ed: “Tufts Must Defend Survivors’ Dignity in Policy and Practice.”

Kale and Consent

Trigger warning: discussion of sexual assault

Wondering what kale has to do with consent? Check out this new video from members of ASAP and the Tufts Consent Culture Network that looks at rape culture and victim-blaming:

We would love to hear your thoughts! If you have something you want to share, leave a comment on YouTube or on this post.

Special thanks to Nate Matthews for spearheading this project, to Stephen Goeman and Bruce Bausk for starring, to Kumar Ramanathan and Leah Muskin-Pierret for behind-the-scenes support, and to Danny Foster for cooking absolutely delicious kale.
