Audrie & Daisy

The new Netflix documentary Audrie and Daisy tells the modern day story of two 14 year old girls who were sexually assaulted by high school athletes. This is a powerful documentary for parents, educators, coaches, and teenagers to watch. It provides an excellent springboard for a much needed discussion that we should all be having in order to educate our youth on the issues of bullying, sexual harassment, dating violence and sexual assault.

The organization "Futures Without Violence" has included resources on the Audrie and Daisy website that can be used at home, in classrooms, and in locker rooms. It's time we stand up to this issue and talk openly and honestly with our youth about teenage relationships, so they understand the difference between what is healthy and what is not. It's vital that we instill values that help them understand what is right and wrong when it comes to sexuality and consent.

Audrie and Daisy is streaming on Netflix now. We highly recommend watching it if you have teenagers in your life.
