“Yes!” What another awesome day today with the team! We had a lovely check in with everyone to start off the session, along with the delicious food made from the cooking team. We had two sets of great guests to share with us today, Becky George from Planned Parenthood and Hyuntae and Jeena from University of Washington studying in social work.
Becky spoke on the issue of consent verses non-consent today to inform everyone about positive and safe ways to say yes and no to sexual related activities and other general situations that may go on in someone’s life. We went through many different kinds of birth controls and ideas on how to obtain a healthy and communicating relationship. With the ideas and comments we recorded and shared. We applied them to fun activities so that everyone can get involved and active in.
Many great ideas were shared on the topic but we decided the best way to show consent and non-consent is to simply just say “yes” and “no”. Overall today went really smoothly and everyone was open to questions and comments to those who spoke.
