2020 CONFERENCE KEYNOTE:
...But I don’t see color!: Sex Education with 2020 Technicolor Vision
Sex education is a social justice issue sex educators are (obviously) uniquely equipped to advocate and fight for. Yet, along the way we have separated social justice in sex ed from ourselves, our work, and our way forward. What we need is a little vision as we shift into a new decade. We need 4k vibrant colors, not black and white tvs with various shades of gray. This session will discuss awareness and integration of cultural and racial differences with an empahsis on Black female sexuality for sex education that is innovative, intersectional, and shines in all is color glory to bring equity and social justice back into sex education.
