Planning & Organizing Group for the Upcoming, Fabulous 'NCSF Mississippi Valley Consent Summit'!
This will be a closed group, just for the planning committee. At least until we are ready for Go Live!
A DAY LONG INFORMATIONAL EVENT FOR ALL THINGS CONSENT BASED!
Over the past several years, the NCSF has hosted National Consent Summits on both sides of the country. Since it was difficult to travel so far, a new regionally based event was piloted. This will be the First of the 'Annual NCSF Mississippi Valley Consent Summits'!
This will be a "Mixed Format" event - Part panel, Part Un-Con, and Part "Make-your-own-experience." This is wonderful combination of knowledge sharing, information gathering, with several structured panels - a continuation in the ongoing goal to create a safer and more consent positive community.
THIS CONSENT SUMMIT IS NOT JUST FOR THE KINK COMMUNITY. THIS IS AN ALL ENCOMPASSING DISCUSSION ON THE STATE OF CONSENT, IN MANY DIFFERENT UNDERSTANDINGS AND SITUATIONS. THE GROUPS BEING INVITED ARE BROAD AND VARIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO; * Societal Groups (Sex+StL, MTUG, PRIDE StL, Tower Grove Pride, etc.) * University Title IX Stakeholders (Wash U, SLU, UMSL, StLCC & more!) * Community Support (Planned Parenthood Edu, CallForHelp, Safe Connections, etc.) * Alt Lifestyle Groups (FLOG_StLouis, StL3, QaNDI, StL PoC, Queeriosity, Blue Maxx, etc.)
Each panel discussion is approx an hr long, encompassing a different topic, and a Q&A session thereafter. After each panel, the 'parking lot' topics were organized by similarity and discussed further in 'break out' sessions, where the discussions were continued.
The goal is to prompt the players and groups to continue the ideas discussed here, and disseminate the information down into their respective communities. We want positive, affirmative, enthusiastic, informed consent to be the norm!
Thanks for helping out!! We couldn't do this without you!
