Consent 101Sunday April 14, 2019
2:00 PM until 4:00 PM
What is consent? What is sexual assault? How can you protect yourself? Where do you go for help? A panel of experts will facilitate an interactive presentation for older teens and parents that will emphasize practical, hands-on skills and information to promote safety and independence. Using the national “It’s On Us: Stop Sexual Assault” campaign and other resources, the discussion will focus on sexual assault and the topics of recognizing sexual assault, identifying situations in which sexual assault may occur, bystander awareness, strategies to know when and how to intervene, creating an environment where sexual assault is unacceptable, how to help survivors of sexual assault, and prevention strategies. For ages 16 and older, parents strongly encouraged to attend as well. Teen attendees will earn Community Service credit. Please register.
The panel will include Diane Blinn, Licensed Clinical Social Worker; Chris Gilhooly, Licensed Clinical Social Worker; Dr. Marcus Hotaling, PhD, Director of Counseling at Union College; Karen Draper, Sexual Assault Educator; and a local college student.
Co-sponsored by the Voorheesville Community Alliance for Healthy Choices, whose goal is to reduce and eliminate destructive decisions.
