DRAW THE LINE

Engaging Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence.

Your friend passes out on the couch at a party.

Do you leave her there?

Why Draw the Line

When we leave a friend passed out she may be left vulnerable to being sexually assaulted. Every choice we make and every action we take – no matter how small – has the power to make a difference.

When to Draw the Line

Consent matters. Only yes means yes. You can't consent if you're drunk.

How to Draw the Line

There's always more than one option for a bystander. Take a stand safely and do something that you feel comfortable with. You could:

  • Check in with your friend. "Are you ok?"
  • Make up an excuse to get her out of the situation. "Hey, we have to leave now."
  • Tell a sober person. "I think my friend is in trouble."
