All community members are invited to Piedmont High School’s Alan Harvey Theater on Monday, November 14th at 7:00 pm to preview this year’s Consent Assembly. All PHS/MHS freshmen and seniors will be watching the Consent Assembly on Wednesday, November 16 during Academy, so we invite all parents to attend this preview to springboard their own important discussions at home regarding consent.
The Consent Assembly includes dramatic presentations of carefully-curated stories based on high school students’ real accounts of sexual violence and consent, performed by PHS and MHS students. The assembly fosters empathy and critical thinking by showing a variety of perspectives from students who have navigated consent – from survivor to perpetrator to bystander. The assembly also inspires students to embrace the values of affirmative consent, bystander intervention, communication, and healthy relationships.
