Our theme is Sexual Agency/Sexual Rights, inclusive of Reproductive Justice. Invited speakers will inspire members to think deeply and critically about reproductive justice and sexual agency. Conference workshops (with opportunities to earn CE credits) will begin on Thursday, March 5, 2020, followed by a welcome reception from 5 to 7pm and late-night presentations and discussions on sex, sexuality, and disability. Loretta Ross’ keynote starts a full day of presentations on Friday, concluding with feminist karaoke. Saturday opens with the annual awards ceremony and a plenary session where three scholars, Laina Bay-Cheng, Deb Tolman, and Alexandra Rutherford discuss sexual agency and neoliberalism. Saturday night begins with a show by Austin transgender comedian https://www.carinamagyar.com/ and ends with a dance party hosted by an Austin DJ. Presentations and our closing ceremony end the conference by midday Sunday.
ACTIVISM/RESISTANCE/RESILIENCE: Located a few steps from the Texas statehouse, the 2020 conference will be especially activist-focused. We are working with local activist groups.
