Event description

Description

Wednesday, April 10th, 6:00 pm-8:30 pm, $10, (no one turned away for lack of funds) RSVP is appreciated as, we are aiming for a closed group.


In part one of this three part series we will discuss harmful messages we were taught about sex by family, friends, and institutions, and how this information has impacted us as survivors of sexual violence. We will share our own experiences with sex education and highlight the knowledge and activism of those often left out of or banned from the conversation. We aim to expand the way that we look at sexual violence and its effects through an intersectional lens, and give participants a taste of what inclusive sex education could be moving forward!

Part II will be on Wednesday, April 17th and Part III will be on Wednesday, April 24th (we encourage you to attend all three parts of the series if possible, but it is not required).
