Consent is So Frat

Making consent and healthy relationships part of what it means to be a fraternity brother or sorority sister.

#AFLVConsent

If you haven’t figured it out already, we’re pretty excited about AFLV Central. The Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values brings together students, advisors, and national representatives from a wide array of national fraternities and sororities to discuss the best of what our organizations stand for. This year, one of those values being featured is consent, and we’re honored to be one of the groups bringing this discussion.

Two of this year’s featured speakers discuss creating a Greek culture which works to promote consent and prevent sexual violence:

Carlos Andrés Gómez, an incredible spoken word artist and close friend of Consent is So Frat, will be speaking on modern manhood for fraternity brothers – how as fraternity men we can have a healthy masculinity, including living the value of consent.

Mike Dilbeck will be speaking on “The Creed of Courageous Leadership”, a great way to live your values by knowing how and when to be a courageous bystander and step in. These skills are not only for preventing sexual violence, but certainly do their part to create a culture of consent.

We’re thrilled to see that in the AFLVCentral Program Book, there are Nine programs that will help Greek students, advisors, and national representatives work to make promoting consent and preventing sexual assault part of being Greek.

    • Navigating Sexual Assault Policies on Today’s Campuses: What you Must Know – Angela Rose & Julia Dixon, PAVE: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment
    • (Re)Defining the Fraternity Man – Jason Hinson-Noeln, Kyle Martin, & Brittany Ankeny, North-American Interfraternity Conference
    • Sorostitute, Frat Mattress, and other ways we Slut Shame Sorority Women – Lee Ann Kassab, Sexual Violence Prevention Educator
    • Step Up: Understanding Bystander Intervention – Mike Dilbeck, CAMPUSPEAK
    • A Concerted Effort: How your Fraternity Community can become an Ally in Ending Sexual Assault – Kyle Martin, Jason Hinson-Nolen, North-American Interfraternity Conference; Chelsea Bowers, R.A.I.N.N
    • Respect this: Safer, Saner Sex in College – Cindy Pierce, Kirkland Productions
    • Embracing the F-Word: It’s for Men, Too – Janine Myers, Virginia Tech; Charles Andrean, Lambda Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Inc.
    • Consent is So Frat – Matt Leibowitz, Consent is So Frat
    • Greeks Shattering the Silence & Preventing the Violence – Angela Rose, CAMPUSPEAK; Julia Dixon, PAVE

It’s incredible to see so many national groups within the Greek and sexual assault prevention communities come together to bring this conversation to AFLV Central. As a group ran primarily by students, both on our team and on each of the campuses we work with, it’s a privilege to be featured alongside so many professional speakers and organizations.


So now that we (and hopefully you!) are excited about AFLV Central, what can you do between now and the conference? Well use our new hashtag, #AFLVConsent, to talk about what the Greek value of consent means to you! What has your chapter done to promote consent? What do you look forward to doing? What ideas do you have for the future? Let us know! We’ll be counting down to the conference with a post each day about what #AFLVConsent means to us, and featuring your ideas as well!
