#RECLAIM — A Conversation About Sexual + Emotional Health

Hosted by Cherry and Artymis Collective

Monday, February 12th
7-11 PM
Tarot Society Brooklyn

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and what a better time to open up a dialogue about what it means to have sexually and emotionally healthy relationships. Between #metoo and Time’s Up, the topic of sexual harassment and assault has been a hot one in the media. #RECLAIM seeks to dig deeper than that and address a matter that’s been itching at the back of everyone’s minds — why is it that almost everyone we know has faced sexual misconduct and emotional abuse? What about our culture makes these issues so prevalent? How can we work together to make sure our interpersonal relationships, both sexual, romantic, and otherwise, are rich with communication and respect, and free of toxicity and harassment? Let’s get into the nuances of consent, vulnerability, and emotional health. Join us for a night of speeches, poetry, music, and discussions.
