Advocacy

Advocacy 101

gender

Gender & Sexuality

This workshop is for anyone open and willing to learn about gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, and sex. Attendees will learn about gender pronouns, gender unicorn, and breaking down the barriers created by the binary that society uses to define gender. We strive to provide a safer space to learn and hope that you will walk away with a better understanding of how to respect all people.

Conflict will inevitably come up in our lives; how we respond to it can make all the difference.
