Our Raising the Bar conference is coming up in just a few weeks, providing teachers, clinicians, and other youth-serving professionals with an opportunity to strategize for the future of youth sexual health. We’ll discuss LGBT inclusivity, trauma-informed approaches, how to incorporate an understanding of technology into sex ed, and much more. In short, we’ll come together and dream up how to make the world better for youth – and then we’ll return to our communities and strive to make those strategies a reality.
And in the spirit of Raising the Bar, let’s dream big – really, really big. Because what if sex ed could prevent violence – not just domestic or intimate partner violence, but all kinds of violence? What if it could hinder prejudice, cruelty, fear of difference – what if it could change the entire world?
