This will empower children and adults alike to respect one another even if the end result is not what they had hoped. We must all recognize that we are not entitled to anyone else's body under any circumstances. An easy way to spread the word about consent is by rocking one of our T-shirts to help educate others while you’re at school, on the subway, at the farmers market, or anywhere else you enjoy spending your time!
