This is a four week class for women who have undergone cancer treatment and are ready to reclaim their sexuality. In the four weeks, we cover body image, intimacy, sensuality, and relationships. Most importantly we will cultivate a community of women who support one another and understand each other's vulnerability.
The class is four weeks starting Mondays, 5 pm to 6:30 pm, April 24th, and ending Monday, May 15th. The cost is $60 for all four weeks. Scholarships available. Register with Tara Galeano, L.P.C., CST.
We learned yesterday that the Department of Education will no longer enforce Title IX to defend transgender students, with agreement from the new Secretary, Betsy DeVos. This decision comes under heavy pressure from Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice. The broad reaching effect of this choice goes much further than just bathrooms; this change ends all rights and protections afforded to transgender youth under Title IX.
There has never been a better time to be an activist/ active part of our Volunteer CREW. We are so grateful that you have reached OUT and that you are feeling inspired to put that focused energy towards action. Our next OBC Volunteer Training is Wednesday March 1st 5:30-8PM at the OBC Longmont Office
