Humanists of Minnesota is teaming up with Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MVUUF) to co-sponsor a monthly “sex ed” series for young adults and young parents. The October session will focus on sexuality through one’s lifespan featuring a panel discussion of men and women in the later stages of their lives. Our panelists will talk about their personal experiences with sexual morality, family planning and how religious values have influenced their paths. All panelists will speak from a humanist perspective, but their religious backgrounds are varied. One panelist is a former Mormon and another is a former Catholic lay-leader. A special discussion will also take place regarding the choice to carry a child to term before the passing of Roe vs. Wade.
Professional childcare will be provided for those who RSVP in advance. We will gather at 6:30 to socialize over supper with the program beginning at 7:15. The dinner entrée of Buca pasta will be provided (along with beer); please bring a potluck item to share if you want to have dinner with us. All MVUUF members, friends and fellow humanists are welcome between the ages of 21-40.
This program is being coordinated by Jill Carlson, a licensed therapist, who is an active member in three organizations that advocate humanist values: MVUUF, Humanists of MN and MN Atheists. There is no cost for the program thanks to a grant from the Unitarian Universalist Association which has been an advocate of comprehensive, secular-based sex education for decades.
Please contact Jill Carlson for more information and/or to RSVP for childcare.
