Consent & Anti-Racism - Part 1

Sun, Mar 14 from 11am - 1pm (Pacific)

This event has passed.

What does it mean to be a white antiracist? What is the role of white people in the movement for racial justice and liberation? And what does consent got to do with it? Join the Consent Academy and special guest Asha Lerae for a virtual workshop, where we will begin to answer these complex questions drawing largely on the knowledge, lived experience, and scholarship of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color.

About our special guest: 
Asha Lerae is a sex and consent educator, domestic violence survivor support group facilitator, and certified yoga teacher. She teaches consent as a trauma-informed somatic praxis based on the values of autonomy and responsibility. She believes consent praxis can prevent and address harm, promote pleasure, and even change oppressive systems. You can learn more about her work here: https://ashalerae.com/

This class is geared towards white folx. BIPOC folx are welcome to participate.
