SPP Intersectional Anti-Racism & Sex Positivity: Navigating in Play Spaces
Where do anti-racism and sex positivity intersect?
Time & Location
Oct 28, 2021, 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
About the Event
This anti-racism class helps folks think about the many power dynamics that affect us when we interact in a community. It’s a good space for beginners who are eager to learn. We’ll think about our many identities and how they shape our expertise, and the areas where we need to learn and grow. We’ll spend some time talking about the inevitable mistakes we make and the ways we hurt each other, and walk through the protocol we’ll use for those hard times when we’ve done things that don’t align with our values. We’ll center race while also addressing intersectionality; and encourage folks to work on perspective-taking from our privileges as well as our oppressions.
DATE/TIME: Thursday, Oct 28, 6:00pm - 8:30pm PST
COST: THIS CLASS IS A SLIDING SCALE FROM $0-15 If you can pay the full $15 please do so to help us build our community and enable everyone to pay what they can. Zoom link will be sent to those who RSVP.
