Don't Grab My Pussy 2.0

At this fundraiser for RESTORE Sexual Assault Services, I performed feats of strength while sharing a personal account of surviving and thriving in life after experiences of sexual assault.

“In celebration of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, in the wake of the #metoo movement, the #timesup movement and the every-day attack on women's sexual and reproductive health as well as the general dismissal of survivors' stories, we bring you a night to laugh, cry, yell and raise money for an amazing cause.”

Creating Inclusive Fitness Spaces

In this workshop, participants explored ways in which radical and genuine acceptance of all bodies and identities can make fitness spaces and programs safe and celebratory for all. From theories of intersectionality to strategies for transforming programs in the fields of health/wellness, participants discovered ways that health and wellness spaces have traditionally created barriers to the full participation of all community members, learn about the tools and resources available to remove these barriers, and confront the institutionalized dynamics of privilege in order to build authentic relationships with individuals and communities who continue to face resistance to their full inclusion.
