Consent Discussion Group for BIPOC

Sun, Apr 3 from 11am - 1pm (Pacific)

This event has passed.

Consent is challenging. Dealing with others and their lack of consensual behavior, even more so. And it gets even more complicated when your racial identity is marginalized. Sometimes you need a place to talk about it.

This discussion group meets biannually and is open to all who identify as BIPOC - Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Color. The facilitator will guide an open discussion on both general and personal issues around consent, as it applies to your daily life and/or race and identity.

About the Consent Academy:

The Consent Academy is an educational collective based out of Seattle, WA. Our mission is to teach consent in all of its complexity, aspects, and potential. With over 60 years of education experience collectively, our approach incorporates disciplines of psychology, sociology, public health, psychotherapy, and personal coaching to create a systemic view of how consent impacts everyone from the bedroom to the boardroom. We believe consent is part of everyday life and its practice builds stronger, safer, and more connected communities.
