Monterey Bay Activist Networks
Friday 26 July, 2013 – 6:30pm-9pm: The Direct Action Monterey Network will be hosting an interactive workshop on negotiating sexual consent. The event will take place at the Peace Resource Center in Seaside.
Even though we’re feminist, anarchist, and free-thinkers, that doesn’t mean that we are “done” actively engaging in sexual consent. Consent is not like riding a bicycle; it takes constant and continual work, but it’s work that can be immensely rewarding. The Direct Action Monterey Network will be hosting a workshop on sexual consent that will include discussions, writing exercises, and hands-on activities.
We’ll be hanging out from 6:30pm, but doors will close at 7pm, and late-comer may not be admitted.
This workshop aims to be an anti-racist and fat, trans & queer positive space.
