Join a panel of faculty, staff, and local community organizers as they explore the meaning of consent. The panel will take a look at the history of consent and offer perspective on how privilege, power, and difference impact the consent conversation today. You’ll also learn how local organizers are working with community members to engage youth and adults alike in the conversation about consent.

The event will take place at Holy Family University’s Education Technology Center (ETC) in the lobby and art gallery. Parking is available to all in the Campus Center parking lot in the visitor section without restriction.
