Power and sexual violence in queer communities

Join us for a workshop specifically designed for queer students that is focused on understanding power dynamics in dating and sexual relationships, recognizing how many discussions of dating and sexual violence exclude and harm queer folks and exploring how queer joy can transform harm within communities.

Discussions will be informed by power and identities, with the aim of empowering students to feel comfortable exercising their agency to shift flows of power in sexual and relationship contexts. Students will examine their own experiences and their unique capability to counteract taboos and harmful assumptions.

The workshop will take place on Thursday, March 30, from 1-2:30 p.m. in the Union, Room 293 (Student Equity & Diversity Meeting Room). It is being presented by the McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention Research & Education and the LGBT Resource Center as a Pride Week event.
