Consent Florida

Devin Rodriguez / WUSF News

  One in six women in Florida has been raped at some point in her life, and barely six in 1,000 rapists go to jail for their crimes.

The Tampa Bay Area Chiefs of Police Association declared Thursday that they are going to renew their efforts to decrease sexual assault.

Consent Florida is a new initiative to change ideas concerning rape culture among young people. Rape culture is the environment which allows sexual violence against victims to be normalized and excused in society.
