The Sexuality Liberators And Movers virtual symposium is for parents, teachers, sexuality educators and direct service adults who work with and care for young people.

S.L.A.M.'s focus is shifting and moving sex education forward by centering the contributions, experiences, and expertise of Educators of Color, while challenging isms and institutions that keep sex education white-washed, fear based, and ineffective.

At S.L.A.M. we believe that our young people, our children, students and siblings deserve sex education that centers and affirms them. With this goal in mind, conference organizer, Stephanie Zapata, has brought together some of the country’s top youth centered BIPOC Sexperts.

Join us on January 27th & 28th, 2022!
Featured Keynote Speakers:
