Strategies for Sexual Violence-it happened, what next?


 Let’s talk strategy and empowerment. What can you do if you’ve been sexually violated by someone who seems to have more privilege, celebrity or “power” than you? Often we see survivors turn to social media, but is this the right thing to do? Will you impact your accusation and case? Our forensic behavioral specialist Ashleigh DiSerio shares some valuable details about how to fight sexual violence. You won’t want to miss this panel.

Monachapsis:Black Women’s Discussion on Love

We don't have much time, but let's make it a beautiful moment. I am the Sexual Abolitionist. My work centers around reconnecting people to their sexual-emotional-spritual self through minimizing cultural and sexual oppression.
My focus is Black people and Black love- let's get back to it! But to get back to it, the journey always begins with ourselves (that includes me). We all have to do the work. Saturday we will take a brief journey through history, love and Black women. Let's take some time to unpack how we became who we are.
