This week- Let's get back to the basics. What do we even mean when we talk about sexual assault? How can you tell if something is an assault? Is rape the same thing as assault?

Engage by Uplift tackles the difficult issues surrounding sexual abuse that the YouTube and online communities face. We're starting real talk for real change.

Each week, our host Kat Lazo discusses abuse and how it manifests in virtual spaces. Watch and collaborate with us through weekly calls to action, and join in with some of your favorite YouTubers as they consider the issues in round table discussions.

THIS WEEK'S CALL TO ACTION! - Tell us about some media representations you've seen of people being manipulated or pressured into sex, from movies, TV, books, etc. Share with us using the hashtag #EngageUplift. We may feature it!
