Woodhull’s 5th Annual Sexual Freedom Summit: Call for 2014 Workshop Proposals

wsfa

 

We’re thrilled to open our call for proposals for our fifth annual Sexual Freedom Summit to be held in Washington, DC August 14 – 17, 2014!

Who can submit to present a workshop at the conference? You! We want to hear from all voices who have expertise in advocacy for sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. The political is personal and the personal is political. We invite you to share your work, whether your focus is the white picket fence or the dungeon, LGBT rights or reproductive justice, community organizing or lobbying, social media or sexuality education.

We strongly recommend that you have a draft of your proposal prepared before continuing below to submit your proposal.

Please click here to go directly to the proposal form.

NOTE:  If your submission is accepted you will be offered a discounted registration rate in recognition of your time and your contribution to the conference. Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance is a non-profit organization and while this Summit is an educational event and not a fundraiser, it does need to cover its costs. The full cost of registration is $225. Presenters are offered registration starting at $75, and we ask that you pay what you can afford (more or less!)  We do have a limited number of donated registrations that we can offer so that cost is not a barrier to participation.

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.

We want to hear from you. Some themes to consider are:

  • sexual freedom
  • aging and ageism
  • youth issues
  • anti-violence, including sexual assault and domestic violence
  • sex work
  • disability and access
  • human rights
  • HIV/AIDS, STIs
  • sex and religion
  • LGBTQ rights
  • gender issues, expression, identity, and freedom
  • sexuality education
  • sex, politics, and the law
  • sexual practices
  • nontraditional family and relationship structures
  • racial and economic justice
  • reproductive justice
  • sexual health
  • women’s rights
  • body politics

Please plan for a 90 minute session. We prefer sessions that are highly interactive, but if you are proposing a more traditional panel, you should still allow at least 20 – 25 minutes for discussion and take-aways. Our goal is to encourage conversation and connections in our workshops.  The hotel is able to accommodate requests for PowerPoint presentations or films and if your proposal is accepted and you need both or either, we will put you in direct touch with the hotel so you can make these arrangements.  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide either and encourage you to plan accordingly.

Ready to submit your workshop? See below for the proposal form! Remember, we suggest that you keep a master copy “just in case!”  No copies of submissions will be provided.

The deadline for proposals is January 22, 2014!

You will be notified of the status of your proposal beginning on or after February 15, 2014.
