Awareness Campaign to Stop Unwanted Groping in Bars (Wilmington, NC)

This petition had 698 supporters

A friend of mine recently informed me that every single time she goes out, at least one guy would slap or grab her butt (without consent). Sadly, I know many others that have dealt with the same or similar experiences while going out in Wilmington.

Getting groped shouldn’t be a part of going out. Sign the petition to ask bars in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach to display these posters.

While the posters are not a perfect solution to end sexual assault, they are a way to inform people that unwanted sexual touching is never okay, not even in the bar scene. Engaging in any sort of sexual contact with someone, against their will, for the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification, is a class A1 misdemeanor under North Carolina law.
