Maya Jupiter's "Never Said Yes" takes a stand for affirmative consent


Share your creativity using #NeverSaidYesContest for a chance to be featured in a remix of the song.

Denim Day spokesperson and Emcee, Maya Jupiter’s new music video, presented by Artivist Entertainment, in partnership with Peace Over Violence and Justice For My Sister is a poignant, high-energy video that takes a stand for affirmative consent, just as Peace Over Violence’s prepares for its annual Denim Day rape prevention education campaign.

Listeners will have an opportunity to be active participants through a fun multimedia project. They will be able to engage in the discussion by recreating a fourth verse of the song. We are excited for the campaign and the contributions to ending rape culture via music, video, social media and educational platforms.

The music video features our very own Patti Giggans, along with special guest appearances by actress-singer Sara Ramirez and singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc, as well as Fe Felicia Montes of Mujeres de Maiz.
