Negotiating Boundaries in the #MeToo Era
The #MeToo movement has been a powerful force in bringing to light harmful behaviors. But how does a social movement change from an idea to implementing real social change? Please join us as we begin to negotiate boundaries in the #MeToo era.
The day will include:
- Our Keynote Speaker Morgan Jerkins, author of This Will Be My Undoing, will present: Capitalism and Abuse: How Ecosystems of Power Create Victims
- A faculty panel discussion on The #MeToo Era: Perspectives of UM-Dearborn Professors
- A screening of Prof. Jennifer Proctor's film, Am I Pretty? during lunch
- Afternoon workshops: Combatting the Trivialization of Sexual Assault in the Age of the #MeToo Movement (presented by Benita Robinson) and Asserting my space…..how to define, assert and hold my boundaries from a place of internal self acceptance (presented by Heidi Sproull)
Registration is required. Deadline is April 16.
