Consent is vital to liberation struggles: relationships and structures founded on mutual agreement are essential to creating a better world. In movement spaces, folks agree that we need to practice what we preach. So, let’s practice!
In this interactive workshop, which is designed for folks who engage in anti-oppression work in and around DC, we will:
Explore best practices for consent
Role-play negotiation and boundary-setting
Practice bystander intervention
Discuss applications of consent during direct action
Examine holding others accountable for consent violations
… and so much more! We will also have take-home materials for participants. This workshop is open to all, and free to attend – although we encourage you to donate to our costs here: gofundme.com/consent-in-the-movement-workshop
You MUST register by 11:59pm November 9th in order to attend. This event will cap at 30 participants, so don’t delay! Please include any questions or requests, especially about accommodation, in your registration form. Thank you! Register here: tinyurl.com/ydecsj5k
We’ll kick off with a late lunch, and move into our workshop promptly at 2:00pm. Childcare will be provided to anyone who needs it (please let us know ahead of time), and the space is wheelchair accessible.
