California's Affirmative Consent Standard
"Yes Means Yes" is the law in California
In 2014, California enacted into law Senate Bill 967, which requires schools whose students receive financial aid to uphold an affirmative consent standard.
'Affirmative consent' means affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.
