Award-winning sex education activist Laci Green, one of TIME Magazine’s “30 Most Influential People on the Internet,” was the keynote speaker during RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) week at the University of Redlands.
Award-winning sex education activist, Laci Green spoke to hundreds of students as part of the college’s RAINN — Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network — Week held each year to raise awareness about preventing sexual assault.
“Consent is a form of communication and I think this is one of the reasons why people have anxieties about it, because we don’t know how to talk about sex,” Laci Green said. “But we are very much on the brink right now of changing that, of bringing conversations about sexuality, sex, sexual assault to the forefront. Our generation is responsible for all the big conversations happening. It is us, and it is on us to continue those conversations.”
Our Cohort had a seminar about multiculturalism in the classroom, and one of the guest speakers told us about this amazing project she does in her classroom about immigration and heritage. This project allows students to research and present something that is personally relevant to their lives.
