An annual day highlighting the need for consent education in MI
Michigan Youth (MY) Consent Day is an initiative launched in 2014 to aid young people in understanding the difference between consent and nonconsent. Its primary goal is to provide them with resources to empower themselves to know their rights, communicate about consent, and engage in healthy relationships. MY Consent Day held annually on the fourth Tuesday in September. Sexual assaults are most likely to occur during the first three months of the school year – September, October, and November. MY Consent Day is held during this time in an effort to make young people more aware of their own actions, as well as the actions of those around them.
