Consent 101

Location: nugent, 2nd floor

The purpose of this workshop is to start a conversation around what members in the ISRC are fighting for and affirm those who have always continued to fight. We are also creating a space to affirm the work that many women of color have led and continue to lead within the center, our communities and beyond. Within this space we encourage participants to explore creative writing skills and to construct any form of written expression. This includes but is not limited to poems, spoken word and journaling.

The voices of the unheard

Natalie Fajardo & Allymyr Flores Atrero


Location: nugent, 2nd floor

In light of the recent explosion of womxn (and some men) who are coming forward with their personal experiences of sexual assault and harassment under the #MeToo movement, many have asked the question, “Why have these individuals remained silent for so long?” Artist, Community Organizer/Activist, and Sexual Assault Survivor, Leilani Clark, will break down and demystify the term Rape Culture, aka the normalization and silencing of rape and sexual assault, and how it is upheld within our institutions, social and cultural norms, and internal psyches.

Attendees who would benefit include sexual assault survivors, advocates and supporters.

Yoga is often defined as "union," but it really is about the re-unification of our embodied selves with all that might want to sever us from full inhabitation of those physical beings: criticisms of what we look like, how we behave, life choices we've made... It is the re-meeting of our narratives of "me"-ness (whether instituted by self or society) with the core of who each of us is: a being with expansive, unbounded potential to heal and empower those around us as we have healed ourselves; to act in the world as a Bodhisattva warrior: one who cultivates self-compassion, self-honesty, clear seeing and truth-telling for the betterment of all. This session invites participants of all ages, sizes, identity orientations and lifestyles to step on the path of the Bodhisattva warrior by caring for our own, tender, fierce bodies first: cultivating moments of ease and joy in the muscles and other soft tissues of the body, breathing to settle and heal the nervous system, and moving gently to begin to re-connect with the fire and strength of the awakened heart of the Bodhisattva warrior.

Healing the Heart of the Bodhisattva Warrior: Yoga for Everyday Liberation

Leah Stauber


Location: nugent, 2nd floor

This workshop is for folks who are new to concepts of gender identity, gender expression and/or pronouns, and would like to spend time working through these concepts. For those with some familiarity already, we will move beyond the gender binary. The goals of this workshop are to develop foundational knowledge about gender, build awareness around the use of pronouns, and build skills for practicing inclusivity in daily life.

Session IV


Location: student union, San Pedro room

Never had a chance to talk about sex education? Haven’t had a chance to talk about queer sex? Have a question that you’ve been afraid to ask but really want to know the answer to? Then Queer Sex Ed is the opportunity to ask away! This workshop will have a heavy focus on dialogue and audience participation through anonymous questions related to sex, relationships, bodies, identities and all of the things that make-up the queer sex! Join Miss Jai as we explore how we can talk openly and honestly about the sex we have (or don’t have) and how to navigate those spaces with a partner (or partners). This workshop is not exclusive to gender or sexual minorities, but the focus will be on queerness in its many forms! Hope to see ya there!

Storytelling is a resistive way of speaking our truths, understanding ourselves and understanding one another because the unnatural world has sought to mislabel and undermine storytelling as an invalid form of communication. This workshop seeks to reclaim this practice to relearn how to be present with one another, listen, truth tell, take back community power and center our personal and collective healing.

Folks attending Leilani’s workshop and/or folks who are interested in taking the #MeToo framework and giving it life with your story. Stephanie uses storytelling as a healing modality to deepen our connections with one another during a time when we must have each other backs.
