In Collaboration with Black Latinidad
The Evolution of “The Talk”
What exactly is “the talk”? At what age do parents discuss this uncomfortable but imperative topic? In a time where sex education in public schools is almost eradicated, how are young people obtaining these vital tools? Where do younger children fit into the conversation of sex and who decides what sex is? Join in the conversation to understand the power of comprehensive sex education for children and youth as a tool of power and a mechanism to combat child sexual abuse.
Hidden Voices:Healing through storytelling--
Ignacio G. Hutiá Xeiti Rivera leads a night of poetry and storytelling for and about folks at the margins. Ignacio will share stories and skits about survivorship, queerness and violence.
They will be joined with a line up of POC, teen, LGBTQ youth and poor folks. We will transform our hidden voices to unapologetic community sharing and public healing through poetry, storytelling and skits.
