After his sister was sexually assaulted in 1989, Mike Domitrz started teaching in schools about dating and intimacy with the goal of reducing sexual violence. He founded the Center for Respect in 2002, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and travels across the country to give trainings on how to build healthy relationships and support survivors of sexual assault.
WPSU'S Min Xian talked with Domitrz about consent, intimacy and respect in relationships and in the workplace. Domitrz believes respect is a kind of skill and takes practice. He says it could be as straightforward as asking someone, “Can I kiss you?”
