Join us for a panel discussion about the important role of men in ending sexual harassment and moving from fear to healing in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Experts will discuss strategies to address sexual harassment and promote consent and healthy sexuality on the individual, interpersonal, and societal level. Panelists will also explore definitions of harassment and consent, techniques for interrupting sexual harassment, and methods for preventing sexual violence and having important conversations with kids.
Don't miss this unique opportunity for men to collectively examine social norms around sex and sexuality, challenge injustice, and engage in action for positive social transformation

ABOUT THE 'SEX TURNED UP' CAMPAIGN
When it comes to affection, sex and sexuality, we all have boundaries—the lines that define where we stop being comfortable and start feeling uneasy. Boundaries are tricky because they’re invisible. And because they’re unique to each of us. One person’s idea of a joke can be another person’s hurtful insult.
Sex Turned Up is a campaign about talking, and it’s about listening. And it starts now.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE CAMPAIGN?
Sex Turned Up began in the spring of 2018 when several Arizona politicians re-donated to ACESDV funds they had received from an insidious source—profits from a human trafficking operation.
From the organizers:
"We knew we had to ensure that the pain behind those dollars were exchanged for empowerment and change. What we could never have expected was the #MeToo movement, and the incredible potential for change that our community and country now face. Courageous women and men are coming forward and bravely sharing and confronting behaviors that have prevailed for far too long. Together we are tackling the past and creating a new future. Sex Turned Up is creating the future we need. One where everyone is free to be their authentic selves. Help us spread the word by sharing news of the Sex Turned Up campaign on your social media pages using #SexOutLoud."
