Anti-Blackness in Sex Education

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

As educators and youth advocates we must do the work of identifying anti-blackness within sex education & sexual health and it’s impacts on black youth. Our hope is that after the workshop attendees feel better equipped to recognize, reflect on, and interrupt anti-blackness within topics related to sexual health. We’ll explore what factors impact sexual health outcomes for black youth and reflect on, gather, and share strategies and tools that we can use in our work. This will happen as we review statistics, videos, and quotes with ample time for discussion and reflection. This is an opportunity to deepen or add to your process and understanding of uprooting white supremacy in our work.
