Ashland High Student Sparks Sexual Assault Awareness

JPR News
/

Sexual assault, misconduct, and harassment are topics we need to talk about... but are frequently reluctant to discuss openly.  Ashland High School student Bella Head wants her fellow students to talk about them. 

Bella is a sexual assault survivor herself, and the founder of a sexual assault education campaign at AHS, "Got Consent?" 

Her efforts in Ashland mirror those of city police and Southern Oregon University, which are gaining national recognition for their sexual assault response programs.  Bella Head and SOU confidential advisor Angela Fleischer visit the studio.
