Submitting a Session Proposal

Thank you for your interest in submitting a workshop proposal for Woodhull’s Third Annual Sexual Freedom Summit, “Prohibition Politics: The Assault on Sexual Freedom.”

Please read this document thoroughly before going online to submit your proposal.

We strongly recommend that you have a draft of your proposal prepared before going online to submit your proposal. To submit a proposal, click here.

Below are general guidelines for submitting a workshop proposal.

Woodhull encourages the submission of proposals designed as panel presentations where there is an opportunity for substantive conference attendee participation in the dialogue. Because workshop sessions will only be 60 minutes, proposals with more than three panelists will be given lowest priority.

Session Format

70 Minute Presentation – Prepared presentations or trainings with stated and specific learning objectives. Workshops are teaching/learning sessions in which attendees gain useful information, advice, and technical assistance about a specific topic. Highest priority will be given to those proposals that include discussions of intersectional work and collaborative opportunities to create change.

Topic Areas

There are a wide variety of topics that fall under the umbrella of sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. Woodhull seeks session proposals that include and reflect the perspectives, needs and priorities of our multi-racial, multi-gender, multi-abled, and multi-aged communities and movement.

Woodhull’s Sexual Freedom Summit program will offer sessions that teach and train the essential skills to achieve social change. You will be asked to select for your proposed session one of the topic areas, listed below.
