Tomorrow—that's Tuesday!— at 6 p.m, The Stranger will be hosting a panel on consent at St. John's Bar and Eatery. It's our inaugural installment of a new series of talks called Night School. If you've attended one of our Resist/Recharge events, you have a general idea of what these events are all about. We've chatted with organizations doing some of the most important work in our community, including Somos Seattle, Langston, 21 Progress, Northwest Harvest, and more. Expect more under our new name, Night School.

On the topic of consent, Stranger staff writer Sydney Brownstone will lead a talk with Seattle Times reporter Paige Cornwell and two representatives from the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC). Cornwell recently wrote a story digging into when and how people learn about consent, based on a survey of 250 readers. KCSARC is one of the region's leading organizations on sexual assault crisis response and prevention.

Join us for a discussion about how your everyday actions can play a vital role in sexual violence prevention! You’ll discover practical strategies for building a community culture of consent, reflect on action for creating change, and learn why we’ve been talking about this all wrong!

Don't miss it.
