KRCL's RadioACTive has long been a space for community organizers and activists to share information and engage in important conversations. RadioActive Co-host and Associate Producer Billy Palmer has spent over 15 years empowering his community as an activist, organizer, and advocate. In addition to his work with KRCL, Billy volunteers his time and leadership skills to organizations like Neighborworks SLC, the Utah Poor People's Campaign, and the Friends of Arches and Canyonlands.
In May of 2019 Billy began partnering with the Rape Recovery Center (RRC) to host a series of conversations about consent. Billy and RRC staff Megan Asadian and Jorge Barraza are deepening the conversation about healthy relationships, sex, and boundaries. They are taking on the nuanced issues that impact the consent conversation, like masculinity and youth empowerment.
Check out their conversations so far at the links below:

The RRC thanks Billy and KRCL's RadioACTive for furthering this dialogue, and joining us on our mission to educate the community about the cause, impact, and prevention of sexual violence.
