PDF Guides from the 11th Principle Consent:
Responding to perceived consent issues – Consent issues are sometimes hard to spot. We second guess ourselves or tell ourselves it’s none of our business. The balance between “too sensitive” and “too permissive” is a hard one, but we recommend airing on the side of “too sensitive,” especially when your gut tells you something is up. The worst that can happen is you interrupt someone getting their groove on. This guide is intended to help you and your campmates spot and respond to problems occurring in your communal space.
Reporting a Rape or Sexual Assault – The first few hours after an attack can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Many survivors are overwhelmed during this critical period. Filing a report may not be the first thing on your mind, or you may want to do it right away.
The Language of Support – Using the right words – When it comes to supporting a person after a sexual assault or other kinds of abuse, the first rule of thumb is validating their experience. This may seem obvious, but most invalidating language is accidental. We hope this guide can help you choose the right words when providing compassionate, validating, and non-‐judgmental support.
Rangers Guide to Running Interference Against Perceived Consent Violations – 11th Principle focuses primarily on prevention through consent education and advocacy, but we know that our community needs a plan in place for violations if and when they occur. These violations are not only sexual: a violation of consent may take many forms, including but not limited to non-‐consensual photography, gifting, peer pressure, and non-‐sexual touch. We know that our Rangers are likely to be the primary response team for these incidents. We’ve created this guide in an effort to supplement training on this topic.
Support After Non-Consensual Encounters – A Guide for Sanctuary Volunteers – 11th Principle focuses primarily on consent education and advocacy. While these efforts are largely preventative, we know that our community needs a plan in place for violations if and when they occur. These are not only sexual: a violation of consent may take many forms, including but not limited to non-‐consensual photography, gifting, coercion, and non-‐sexual touch. Our Sanctuary team provides invaluable support to burners who need to decompress after a trying or traumatic experience. This guide is intended to provide Sanctuary volunteers with tips for supporting a person after a non-consensual encounter.
