My Body, Your Body, Our Bodies: Youth Forum on Body and Relationship
This youth-only forum will focus on body, relationships, and how we think of our bodies and boundaries within relationships. The conversation will largely be guided by questions the youth raise and will be facilitated by Emily Lindin (Unslut Project), Alicia Crosby (Center for Inclusivity), and youth pastors Taleese and JP Morrill.
