Sexual Violence Forum 2018


View PDF Poster

When it comes to sexual violence, lack of consent is not simply a miscommunication between people that can be addressed through education.

In this one-day forum, we discuss the role of marginalization, power imbalances, privilege and accompanying notions of entitlement, and the many ways in which social disparities inform "consent" and patterns of sexual violence.

Presenters include: Dr. Lise Gotell, Yami Msosa, Sarah Jama, and more! 

Join us for a day full of dynamic speakers, interaction, and arts-based performances.
