  • Teaching Sexual Consent & Egalitarian Relationships in a "Me Too" Era

    Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from noon to 2:00 pm, 555 New Jersey Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20001. What should schools, from pre-K through college, be doing to educate our youth into responsible and respectful conceptions and practices of sexuality? Given the number of questions that have arisen around sexuality, such as the emergence of a multiplicity of LGBTQIA sexual identities, what constitutes an educational approach to sexuality that is respectful of all? When and where is it appropriate -– and, indeed, feasible -– for schools to intervene in the social interactions of youth and what forms should such interventions take? From a variety of perspectives, from K-12 schooling to higher education to legislative, our panel discussed these questions. Watch the video.
