This webinar addresses consent and boundaries, in the setting of the awareness of sensitive topics regarding misconduct in the blind community.
This is an educational discussion to learn about physical, mental, and emotional consent and how consent looks based on developmental stages. This is not a platform to share one's past traumatic events.
As the parents’ division in the leading civil rights organization of the blind in the United States, every day we work toward equity, equality, enriching experiences in our blind community. We thank the brave survivors for sharing their stories during a recent movement under the hashtag #MarchingTogether. We are committed to learning how to better support survivors and victims, prevent future instances through fostering a culture of consent within our communities, and empower individuals to address systemic issues of this nature.
The NFB’s Safety & Support Initiative:
We appreciate each of you and want to express our gratitude to you for being willing to have these ongoing discussions with us.
Mark your calendars for the following webinar dates:
