Hey Yall

Apologies to folks who were planning to come to the Consent Workshop tomorrow facilitated by the Mindful Liberation Project, but one of their members is having some health issues this week, so  we are going to cancel tomorrow. We will reschedule to do the consent workshop at some point in the future, but right now it is more important that some self- care happen!

We hope you will still think about consent, talk to people about consent, practice consent, and take steps towards building a community of consent in whatever community(ies) you participate in.

Here are some links to various zines and pamphlets about consent that you might find useful to read.

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective and the Mindful Liberation Project

This brunch, facilitated by Mindful Liberation Project members and a member of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, will focus on learning consent in everyday life and how to navigate boundaries. Consent will be addressed regarding sexual encounters as well as in non-sexual interactions.

Possible trigger Warnings: Discussion of Violence, Consent Violation, Rape, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Control, Manipulation, Boundary Violation

As this is an event for people who are not 100% with consent (they are there to learn), it is assumed that perpetrators of violence/abuse or people with boundary issues may attend. Due to the nature of the talk and intended possible audience, this is not guaranteed to be a Safe Space for Survivors of Violence. We will have someone trained in safe spaces available for anyone that needs assistance.

Bring a dish to share, vegan preferred.

There will still be a Consent Brunch at the Wingnut on April 27th at 1pm, just with different facilitators. The discussion is open to perpetrators, survivors, and anyone who wants to come get educated on consent. It will obviously not be a safe space, in that the discussion could get heavy or triggering. We will try to facilitate in such a way as to minimize the triggering aspect.

We do not believe that the only ways to deal with rapists or perpetrators is to excommunicate or annihilate. We believe that people who have made mistakes deserve opportunities to be accountable for their mistakes, get educated around relevant issues, and change the way they think and the way they behave.
We hope that in addition to the Overcoming Violence Workshop we hosted with the Mindful Liberation Project in March, this Consent Brunch will be a continued step towards building a culture of consent and accountability that gives folks opportunities to learn the things that they need to in order to be a part of our community.

April 27th – Consent Brunch
Location: The Wingnut Collective
Time: 1pm

Join us at the Wingnut Collective for our first consent brunch and workshop. There has been a recent turn of events within our community that have led us to the decision that we need to have a setting where people can come and be educated on the consent and sex positivity in the modern day. The workshop will be a hands-on discussion based learning environment with many resources provided for both perpetrators and survivors of violence in order to work to combat sexual and domestic violence in our community. We will be discussing topics of domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual harassment and rape culture so please bring an open mind and we will try our best to ensure this zone is as safe as possible.

this will be a potluck, bring a dish to share if you can, vegan preferred.

This will be facilitated by some members of the Mindful Liberation Project and a member of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective.
