The most common way the day is marked is by wearing teal. You could wear clothing or other accessories that are teal. It's best to wear as much of the color as possible, so that people will stop you and ask you why you are wearing it, and that conversations about consent, respect, and the support of survivors are started. Taking a selfie while wearing teal and posting it on social media is another way to get the word out. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center has suggested sharing the following message with your post:
Today is the Sexual Assault Awareness Month Day of Action, and I'm going teal to show my support for survivors. #SAAM #IAsk
One of the happiest moments in my life came when I was talking to GD#1 about safe sex! She was talking about meeting up with her friends and making plans for a sexual encounter and she told me "we discuss everything, nothing happens unless everyone agrees". Kids sure have come a long way since the free love of the 60's. At least this new generation seems to be taking consent very seriously and that makes me very happy.
