Principles of Consent - Sir Justin StClair
One of the hot topics in our community right now is around the definition and application of consent. This class seeks to move beyond the foundational ideas of "no means no," "yes means yes," SCC, and even RACK to try to look at healthier, more robust models in the exploration of a fluid topic. Come prepared to share and discuss!
