You Care, So Be Aware – It's Your Body

You are in Charge of Your Body

You have the right to decide who can touch you and how. It's unfair for someone to touch you when you do not want to be touched. If anyone touches you in a way you do not like, say "no!" and get away.

Trust Your Feelings

Pay attention to that "uh-oh" feeling.

Tell Someone

Tell trusted friends, adults and resources until you get the help you need.

It's Not Your Fault

It's not fair for others to hurt you or to trick or force you to do something you do not want to do.
