What would you do if your organization were criticized for following through with its mission statement? What if you were publicly denigrated, misrepresented, and harassed for your work? What if educators themselves were trying to hamper your attempts at education and empowerment?

Finally, who should have a say in a college student’s sex education?

——————————————-

SHEEC has come under vicious attack due to some (if not most) of the events it has been sponsoring, coordinating, and organizing on Brown’s campus. (For more information on that, check out Aida Manduley’s personal blog and the SHEEC-tagged posts therein.) Thus, the organization’s members have decided to host a panel discussing the role of students, educators, and institutions in regards to censorship, free speech, and the right to organize.

This event will focus on discussing censorship as it relates to sexual education and programming around sexuality issues because we hope to use the panelists’ experiences as “case-studies,” BUT we highly encourage EVERYBODY to attend, especially those who have had similar scary experiences with censorship or those who are curious because they don’t want to have it happen to them.

Come join us in our dialogue!

Though it’s open to the public, Brown students are especially encouraged to attend because we’ll discuss what Brown can do for YOU, and how Brown can protect your rights to hold events. This is CRUCIAL information, especially if you do any sort of “controversial” work on campus.
