Join us as we welcome Steph Zapata (she/they) for Pulling Out & Leaning In: Unpacking the Heteronormative and White Supremacist Culture in Sex Education on Wednesday, January 18th at 7 pm EST over Zoom!
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to everyone who registers for 7 days following the workshop.
About the workshop: Attend this session to explore the current (read: shallow) state of sex education and the doctrines of white supremacy that uphold it. What keeps (Sex) education siloed from the intersections of race and history? Take space in this vulnerably honest session to find out.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
name the roots and history of white supremacy within sexual education and reproductive health.
intentionally question practices/policies/organizations, critiquing and removing those tied to white supremacist ideology.
This workshop is expected to run approx. 60 minutes.
Closed captions will be provided through Zoom.
