The Greater Kingston and Area Safe & Sober Alliance is officially launching the Don’t Be That Guy Campaign in Kingston on September 1st with the generous support of Kingston Frontenac Anti-Violence Coordinating Committee. I have attached the posters for the campaign along with the media release and FAQ. The fourth poster (all in black) is intended for the men’s washrooms. The campaign will feature a billboard, bus shelter ads, interior bus ads as well as an advertisement placed in the popular Welcome Back Magazine. Please feel free to print and use the posters where you see fit. If you would like printed copies mailed to you or would like more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
The Greater Kingston and Area Safe & Sober Alliance is made up of the following
KFL&A Public Health, KGH Sexual Assault Domestic Violence Unit, Royal Military College Health Promotions Program, St Lawrence College, Queen’s University, Sexual Assault Centre Kingston, KAIROS, Kingston Police, Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, Kingston Fire & Rescue
The “Don’t be that Guy” campaign warns you that extremely drunk or unconscious women cannot consent to sex.
The idea/graphics originate from the Edmonton Police Force and attempts to direct prevention strategies where the real problem is – the perpetrators.
Most sexual assault campaigns focus on providing prevention tips for women – but they reinforce the myth that women are somehow responsible for anticipating and preventing sexual violence.
