Our international campaign features skateboarders photographed with signs, decks and artwork saying Consent is Rad. No naming, shaming or blaming – just a short but powerful message of education and support about the importance of sexual consent and healthy communication in our skate scenes. Here are just some of the photographs from our collaborators. More on our Instagram @consent_is_rad
