Me Too | Kids & Consent Session
It's never too early to learn about consent!
Though we often associate consent only with sexual assault, the truth is that it is an essential aspect of all relationships. People (even kids) have the right to set boundaries about their bodies, their possessions, and their actions, and we need to respect those boundaries.
In this class, parents (or grandparents, teachers, or anyone who loves kids) will learn how to teach their children about consent, body autonomy, communication, relationships, and self-worth. The class will be at The Venues Church!
The Venues will also be providing childcare with RSVP, so parents can listen and ask questions in peace.
Women Warriors of The Venues will be hosting their 6th Annual Backpack Bash on August 4th from 1-3pm at Farmer's Park.
The event provides back to school supplies and haircuts for children in foster care in our community.
We are collecting donations of school supplies in the lobby from June 30 - July 28 to make the event possible.
