The Sexuality Liberators And Movers
4 Youth Conference
Join esteemed sex educators, therapists,
and cliniciansfor two-days of critical youth centric skill building
Have you been using the same “comprehensive” sex ed curriculum for eons?
Do you work with or parent youth? How prepared are you for “THE TALK?”
Need help making your sex ed more engaging, inclusive and liberatory?
At S.L.A.M. we believe that ALL young people, children, students and siblings deserve sex education that centers and affirms them. With this goal in mind, conference organizer, Stephanie Zapata, has brought together some of the country’s top youth centered Sexperts of color.
Let's pause there and hold what we've just received. This conference is entirely organized, and headed by sex educators of color. WOW, RIGHT?
This virtual summit aims to brings together [Sex] educators, therapists, teachers, counselors, parents + caregivers to demand better of our youth work and ourselves.
While this conference highlights positions like sex educators/clinicians, as people who would be perfect attendees - it doesn't stop there.
If you have the opportunity to work with, raise, parent, support or mentor youth in anyway - this conference is for you.
Now you're scratching your head wondering why a sex ed conference would be good for a parent or school teacher who isn't explicitly responsible for sex education...
The reason is simple: young people will not wait for you to have a role, title, or certification to begin exploring their sexuality or coming to you with questions.
