Class: Consent Counts Discussion for Community Organizers with heather from NCSF

February 5 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Consent isn’t black and white – in fact sometimes what’s legal isn’t considered ethical by kinky people, and sometimes what we consider ethical isn’t legal. Come join an interactive discussion to talk about creating a consent policy for your group, along with liability issues and how trauma affects the way people react. We’ll also talk about how to deal with consent incidents, and creating your own Consent Response Team for your parties and events. Based on NCSF’s Community Assistance Guide for Groups. Come talk about consent with us!
