There will still be a Consent Brunch at the Wingnut on April 27th at 1pm, just with different facilitators. The discussion is open to perpetrators, survivors, and anyone who wants to come get educated on consent. It will obviously not be a safe space, in that the discussion could get heavy or triggering. We will try to facilitate in such a way as to minimize the triggering aspect.

We do not believe that the only ways to deal with rapists or perpetrators is to excommunicate or annihilate. We believe that people who have made mistakes deserve opportunities to be accountable for their mistakes, get educated around relevant issues, and change the way they think and the way they behave.
We hope that in addition to the Overcoming Violence Workshop we hosted with the Mindful Liberation Project in March, this Consent Brunch will be a continued step towards building a culture of consent and accountability that gives folks opportunities to learn the things that they need to in order to be a part of our community.

This workshop will focus on overcoming many types of violence, with a particular focus on domestic, sexual, and social violence, from the side of the perpetrator. The workshop will go over the cycle that leads a person to adopt and rationalize violent behaviour, and how a perpetrator can take steps to break this cycle.

Running time will be around 2 hours.

Trigger Warning: Discussion of Violence, Consent Violation, Rape, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Control, Manipulation

Due to the nature of the talk and intended audience, this is not guarunteed to be a Safe Space for Survivors of Violence.
