PARTY WITH CONSENT- A MOVEMENT TO HELP END CAMPUS SEXUAL ASSAULT
Ever heard of “partying with consent?” If you hang around a college campus, that’s the buzz phrase that means you don’t have sex without permission. Sounds easy, right? But some people (like rapists) just aren’t getting it. What’s the deal?
Jonathan Kalin, founder of “Party with Consent,” started the movement to help end sexual assault on college campuses and health masculinities. He admits that most of the efforts to help curb campus rape has led to confusion and a lot of frustration, and he’s identified three barriers to solving that problem. The idea that sexual assault is simply the result of miscommunication; the fact that there is a real communication problem surrounding sexual consent; and the contradiction of athletics.
Jonathan travels the US to promote and explain the philosophy behind the Party with Consent movement.
There’s no denying there is a serious sexual assault issue on campuses. Even the president launched a major campaign last fall to address the problems. So does Jonathan have the answers?
Tune in Saturday at 11 am Pacific time to hear what he has to say and to ask questions about the problem and what some people are doing about it.

Tonight's special guest is Kristina Pinson from St Louis, Missouri, the National Secretary of the "Knights for the Innocent" non-profit, which seeks to aid all women and children, and to protect and defend the innocent from abuse. They work hand in hand with law enforcement but once they receive a call they send out a response team. The focus is primarily on Domestic Abuse, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse. They are also available to help and support with other issues but this is the main focus. Because of this activity, dealing with individuals and providing response teams can result in danger to everyone involved. The Knights will be taking an active role, and once they receive a call they'll send out a response team. The team must be of 2 or more individuals for safety. Background checks are done of all member / volunteers. The background check is required because the Knights are looking to make sure that individuals becoming members do not have any felonies for issues the group stands against. This includes, sexual assault, domestic abuse, etc. Group leader William Warren recently said, "We have a lot of good people in this group doing some great things. We're still growing but at a now slower rate, and that is good [because it] gives us a chance to catch up on some things." He goes on, "If we stay focused on why we are here, and what we want to do, we will make this work!"

About today's guest:
Dana World-Patterson has devoted nearly twenty-five years to teaching etiquette & image and has served thousands of individuals through her love to see people be better. The past six years has been a deep dive in eradicating human trafficking.
Her journey began as she noticed the rising anger in girls she encountered through her etiquette trainings. After months of observations, she asked a group of 15 girls she was mentoring, 'how many of them had been touched inappropriately?', and to her dismay 14 of the 15 raised their hands. Although saddened and hurt, a very important piece of the puzzle was revealed. The anger was a cry for help.
Amidst growing awareness of human sex trafficking, Dana joined forces as a founding member of the County Human Trafficking Task Force and when it sunset, she then transitioned as Chairperson of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Greater Milwaukee, an affiliate of the City of Milwaukee Commission on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. The HTTFGM is an assembling of like-minded individuals to be the community response to eradicating human trafficking.
Within this time, Dana World-Patterson, also established Foundations for Freedom, Inc., a 501c3, not-for-profit entity, that specializes in eradicating human trafficking through advocacy, education, and awareness; while addressing vulnerabilities and building confidence in women and girls.
For additional information, call the National Hotline at 888.373.7888, or email Dana World-Patterson at: Foundations4Freedominc@gmail.com.

In this episode of GaptoothDiva Radio, we discuss the serious issue of domestic violence with the home. However, tonight’s conversation isn’t about between man, woman, lover, spouse, or partner, like many of the conversations we hear about often. Tonight’s DV conversation centers on Mother and Daughter. With so many stories surfacing about daughters killing their mothers, mother being arrested for assault, we wanted to allow space for honest dialogue about this issue on our platform. We know firsthand that the mother daughter dynamic can often be challenging and tumultuous at times, unlike the fairy tale friendships that we used to see on television. Tonight we chat about this issue and how we can potentially make a change.
Listen in as we come back with more of the off the cuff entertainment but with real and honest conversation surrounding topics related to you. Using Fashion, Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Lifestyle, I’esha GaptoothDiva holds no punches in an effort to inspire you to be as phenomenal as you were born to be.

Listen as Clare Maxfield interviews Sarah Brummitt on her AICI 2015 conference presentation, Story Telling - The Language of Leadership.
The amount of information created in the world is doubling every two years and the speed of generating yet more data continues to increase. As professionals and as individuals we are overwhelmed with facts, figures, chat, charts, tweets, posts, messages, texts and emails. Our attention span is under assault as we strive to be ‘plugged in’, online, texting, emailing, posting, tweeting, blogging and messaging 24/7. What all of this means is that the challenge facing professional men and women everywhere is how to stand out, rise above, be heard, impress, persuade and motivate others against a background of all this ˜noise’. Exquisite influencers talk the language of leadership in a wide variety of professional contexts - and that means telling great stories. This session will provide you with the knowledge and tools to both deliver and coach the art, science and magic of storytelling in your business.

Last week the majority in the state legislature, under the leadership of Gov. Sam Brownback passed a new controversial law providing "block grant" funding to our public schools. The agenda has many critics, and may force a constitutional crisis in the supreme court. Later this week from March 28 - 30 people will be walking from Johnson County (NE Kansas) to the Topeka statehouse to raise awareness and promote participation of the public.
Information about this event is at Game on for Kansas Schools. Stay tuned to RFK for updates.
Today we will broadcast a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it.
The Assault on Public Education is produced in the studio of WWUH 91.3 FM at the University of Hartford and airs on the last Monday of every month from 12- 1:00 PM.. at WWUH 91.3 FM (www.wwuh.org)

About today's Guest:
Lilada Gee was 6 years old the first time an adult family member sexually abused her. Throughout the ensuing years, she struggled with issues related to the abuse; including clinical depression, post-traumatic stress and low self-esteem. Now, as an adult, she is committed to helping girls and women who are victims of child sexual abuse, heal. Lilada’s Livingroom began in the living room of Lilada’s home, after she publically shared her tumultuous journey of healing from childhood sexual abuse. Girls and women who were in the audience started showing up at her home, in her living room to find a safe place to heal. Since that time, Lilada has traveled from coast-to-coast and abroad, creating safe places for women and girls to rid themselves of the shame, secrets and stigmatism of abuse.
Lilada's Livingroom—a safe place to heal—inspires survivors of sexual abuse to reclaim their spirits, minds and bodies! For additional information, visit www.lilada.org.

Tonight's special guest is Jasmin Newman from New South Wales, Australia, a survivor and activist who frequently works with male child abuse victims. Jasmin, a mother of two, describes herself as a performance coach. Her organization, Relating To Men, is all about relationships, sex, parenting and a humanist approach to equality. It's a place to provide information and resources to support men as they navigate their path through adult life, both in and out of relationships. She specializes in helping men who are struggling with relationships and intimacy issues in their lives, helping them gain the communication and connection skills necessary to create deeper, more intimate and happier relationships with those they love. Jasmin writes, "One of the things that bought me to men's rights movement was the number of doors closed on me for trying to talk about Male Sexual Assault." She points out that for many years we have been looking at women's issues and there is a wide variety of services and resources out there for them, however men's needs got lost somewhere in the equation. As a result, Jasmin's devoted to helping men who are struggling and feeling lost and alone to move to a place of acceptance and confidence and live a life consistent with their values and beliefs. She believes the power of each man's potential is not only accessible, but readily available when they allow themselves to be true to the man within.
