What does it feel like to say yes to something? To say no? To be unsure?
This workshop explores Affirmative Consent: the act of giving and obtaining positive, conscious, and voluntary consent in our everyday lives, every step of the way. Through discussion, scenario work and story-telling you will be empowered to walk away with a deep understanding of what consent means to you as well as how to bring the conversation of consent into your own community.
This workshop is for all genders ages 13-18.
No one turned away for lack of funds.
