6:00pm [6:00pm] Consent 201: Getting Beyond the Basics
Consent 201: Getting Beyond the Basics Monday, February 4, 2019 6pm - 8pm Flying Squirrel Community Space 285 Clarissa St. Rochester, NY Suggested donation: $5 (no one turned away) Join us! Facebook event: Often the term consent is believed merely to encompass permission related to sexual activity. Though this aspect of the conversation is important and necessary, it is only one piece of the story. Consent is a highly personal ideology, influenced by lived experience and aspects of identity. Facilitators will build upon attendees’ lived experiences through discussion and interactive activities. We aim for attendees to leave with a greater understanding of consent as it relates to sexual activity as well as everyday interactions. The workshop will be presented by the Rochester’s Sexual and Reproductive Justice Task Force. The Flying Squirrel Community Space is offering intentional programming for 2019. The months of January and February are dedicated to issues of consent and patriarchy. We are also offering one practical activist skillshare or workshop per month.

Stage 1 explored changes to the RTS fixed-route transit system to better meet the changing needs of the region. This study focused on transit service within Monroe County, including Downtown Rochester & the surrounding suburbs.
