SafeBAE Consent Summits

In 2019, we began piloting our vision for regional consent summits around the US.

The pilot summit was a first of its kind and the goal was for it to serve as a template for scalability on a national level. We are eager to work with student leaders in other regions to build similar events and empower more communities to lift up student leaders around the country!  #letkidslead 

We are SO EXCITED to announcethat we will be holding THREE Summits in 2020!MAINE, VIRGINIA, & NEW MEXICOregistration information & how to attend will be available on each Summit page, as details are finalized!
