We love THE LINE CAMPAIGN! When SPARK began planning our kick-off Summit last fall, Nancy Schwartzman and The Line Campaign were one of the first organizations to reach out to us. Nancy even nominated Carmen Rios, editor and The Line Campaign blogger, for the SPARKTeam. Carmen was amazing as a Girl Activists Speak Out panelist at the Summit, and continues to bridge our organizations as a blogger for SPARK.
The Line Campaign exists to empower young leaders to create a world without sexual violence. The Line is a movie, a non-profit, and a movement that creates critical dialogues around sexuality, relationships, and consent that inspire action against sexual and gender-based violence. The folks at The Line Campaign know that to empower young people we must listen to them, so they encourage personal perspectives on sexuality, health, and rights and help facilitate authentic conversations and responsive actions.
One of our favorite activities, offered here as a SPARKit, is “Where Is Your Line?” a conversation and action about drawing the line and expressing yourself when it come to sexual consent. Where are your emotional and physical boundaries? What do you want? What don’t you like? What if they change? This action encourages youth to consider their own “line” and to create postcards to discuss and post on Flickr for others to see.
