Cancel culture: withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive. In other cases attempting to prevent individuals from working with said individual or company

About this Event
Are you afraid of being “cancelled?” How do we challenge, support, and teach individuals before canceling them? How do we know when it’s time to cancel someone, if at all?
Beyond Cancel Out Culture will explore these current systemic social practices and behaviors on both an individual and group level. The event will include an interactive lecture meant to challenge our perceptions of how we define consent in our relationships and how this impacts our accountability. Throughout this conversation, we will examine the different ways we can establish consensual boundaries. This will include:
Reestablishing a baseline of definitions
Examining the problems with our current culture
Identifying the best steps to move forward in a productive and harm-reduction model
We will provide clear tools to help you challenge yourself and others. We will also teach you how to navigate call out culture without losing your sanity, your community, or your mental health.
Let’s go beyond the basic understanding of consent. Beyond resorting to a system of justice as opposed to harm reduction. Beyond last resorts.
Let’s create a culture of communication.
