Disrupting Racism: NFSJ Learning Series

This series is designed as a number of intentional conversations around core tenants of a racial justice approach. The aim is to give participants the language and tools to have grounded conversation around race and racism, taking steps to disrupt it on the micro level (challenging perceptions within themselves, and also in small scale conversations with family, friends and colleagues). This series is not designed for an exclusively white space! It will be run by Liora and Rob Jones, a facilitator of color.

Boys & Sex: Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent and Navigating the New Masculinity with Peggy Orenstein

Inspired by her New York Times best seller, Orenstein will focus on her work with high school and college boys to reveal how they understand and negotiate the new rules of physical and emotional intimacy. Through wit, research and powerful stories, she explores the impact of so-called locker room talk on boys; how the word “hilarious” robs young men of empathy; why pornography has become the new sex education; boys’ understanding of hookup culture and consent; and their experience as both victims and perpetrators of sexual violence.
