Breaking Down the Silos: Establishing A Culture of Consent, Gender Equality and Reproductive Justice in the New Economy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will explore how to build bridges between our bodies, our movements and our new economies. We will explore why reproductive justice and gender equality are consistently underrepresented in radical organizing and how we build a culture of consent within our movements. Participants will have the opportunity to share common experiences around gender and reproductive violence, develop a deeper understanding of consent beyond the bedroom and leave with practical tools to center these issues in their own organizing efforts.
