This workshop is geared toward cisgender men but everyone is welcome.
Content: The class will focus on consent, power dynamics and relating. We'll discuss: evolving cultural, social and legal definitions of consent, assault, and coercion, accountability strategies, contraception, and the podcast we mention below. This is a non punitive space and we looking forward to showing up, together.
Preparatory work: Prior to the workshop, listen to The Heart’s “no” podcast miniseries (content warning: coercion, questions of sexual consent, heteronormativity). You’ll need about two hours to listen to all four episodes. We will discuss this podcast during the workshop, so feel free to bring any notes you took while listening. Also, read this blog post to understand where we’re coming from in terms of accountability regarding any sexual harm--a non-punitive, abolitionist perspective that centers the experiences of ALL survivors.
