Description: 

The Women of Color Network (WOCN) is hosting the 2012 National Call to Action Institute and Conference on July 9-13, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota. This more centralized location will increase accessibility to the Midwest and Western Regions.

This National Institute and Conference is the result of over 25 national Call to Action Calls that began in April 2007 with over 700 women of color, male and mainstream advocates across the country to raise awareness regarding the workplace challenges that women of color advocates and activists face in their violence against women programs and the lack of women of color leadership within the anti-violence against women movement as a whole.

Our theme is "Collective Empowerment, Collective Liberation", with the purpose of:

  • Uniting women of color across ethnicity, race, age,citizenship, sexual orientation, disability, body type, faith, discipline, and locality for collective survival.
  • Encouraging Aspiring Allies to support women of color leadership and aim for collective liberation in challenging racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, agesim, and other forms of oppression and bias.

Description: 

Why throw a party in honor of consensual sex, you ask? Here's why!

It is necessary to talk about sexual assault and learn more about preventing it. It is necessary to educate the community on the importance of consent. The absence of "no" does not equal "yes." The line between "no" and "yes" is too often blurred by miscommunication or refusal to listen, and worse, the lack of communication has even amde this topic uncomfortable to discuss.

Consent requires an enthusiastic and FREELY GIVEN "YES!" Every. Single. Time.

By having events such as the I <3  Consensual Sex party, targeted specifically to college-aged youth, we intentionally create a public, light-hearted atmosphere to reduce the discomfort surrounding discussions on the otherwise serious topic of sexual assault. We ulitmately hope to create a context in which people can communicate about sex in way that reduces the violence and coercion that often surrounds sexual expression.
