Sex Education in Manitoba

September 8 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Our guest speaker will be Bre Woligroski, Sexuality and Reproductive Health Facilitator from SERC (Sexuality Education Resource Centre MB). Bre will begin by providing an overview of SERC, including its mission and beliefs, and why and how its staff members carry out their work. This will be followed by a Q & A period.  

We have already asked Bre to talk about  

– Working with newcomers (immigrants and refugees);  
Responding to controversies like crisis pregnancy centres, abstinence-only sex education, and FGM (female genital mutilation); 
– Why separate workshops are held for aboriginal people; 
– Training educators and service providers; 
– How Manitoba’s sex ed curriculum compares to that of other provinces, and what is needed to improve it; 
– Difficulties encountered when trying to get their message across. 

Bring your own questions as well. Expect the discussion to be interesting and lively!  

Charity of the Month

SERC will be our Charity of the Month. Support quality, comprehensive sex education!

Our donation will be made in honor of a well-known anti-choice politician – and we’ll make sure he’s notified. Please contribute!
