Campaigns and Collabs

Consent is Rad is an international campaign that runs both independent and collaborative campaigns with various individuals, networks and organisations from around the world. The aim is to share the message of consent in the skateboarding community.

If you are a community group running a skate event we can email you our free community info pack that includes a Consent is Rad brochure and our Break the Cycle call to action as PDFs to print out.

We also do more formal collaborations with skate groups and organizations via a selection and briefing process. Please send us an email to discuss your ideas and to become familiar our no naming, shaming or blaming protocols and community guidelines: consentisrad@gmail.com
