Safe Place and other associates present healthy relationships week through Feb. 13-17 at Chico State.

“Healthy relationships week is more than a feel-good activity” said Alex Brown, Safe Place Advocate and Administrator. This is Safe Place’s first time taking the lead on an event like this, they hope to promote a week to celebrate healthy relationships.

“Research shows that practicing consent is a prevention tool… we want to normalize healthy relationships” Brown said.
