Sexual consent workshops planned for University of Windsor students
Pro Bono Students Canada’s Windsor Law Chapter will launch their annual “Only Yes Means Yes” sexual consent workshop series to University of Windsor students on various floors throughout their respective residences.
It is the first time in the history of the program that the workshop will be delivered directly to students on campus and within their residences.
“Only Yes Means Yes” is an hour-long workshop that aims to help high-school students and young adults throughout the Windsor community gain a comprehensive and modern understanding of both their legal rights and obligations with regards to sexual consent and other issues arising out of intimate relationships and adulthood generally.
It is led by current law students from the University of Windsor, and under the supervision of workshop facilitators from Windsor’s Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF).
Students in the workshop will be put through a series of interactive activities and discussion questions that are designed to prompt debate and spark meaningful discourse pertaining to sexual consent and violence in intimate relationships.
PBSC volunteers are delivering an updated sexual education workshop that better reflects the unique issues which young adults and teens face as they navigate their way through adulthood in the 21st century.
