Khan we invest 200 euros in our Consent Culture?
Title: Khan we invest 200 euros in our Consent Culture
This advice process is about donating 200 euros to Consent Academy - the non-profit that has offered us Consent Basics training.
Olivia Fucking Khan
I was a member of the RAD for a yearish. I have taken many lead roles at KB and related events. I am an active and baddass member of the community.
A decision has been made
Who made the decision: Olivia Khan-Do
When was the decision made: May 2023
Decision Summary: We decided to send 200 euros to Consent Academy so that they would deliver a Consent Training specific to our community. 112 people signed up to attend. 60 people showed up. Around 10 people showed up in the waiting room after the training had started. I am now trained and have permission to deliver this training. Am seeking groups who are interested in having this training for other small groups in Kiez Burn.
The advice process
Advice Process ending date: 22/04/2023
Information gathered before posting
People/roles most affected by this proposal
RAD @Hanna-Maija (Animal)
Kiez Kon lead @Alex Kaos
It has almost been one entire year since KB offered Consent Basics Training at Kiez Kon 2022. I personally paid 1000 euros to cover this training. Kiez Kon in the end had 200 euros to contribute from their budget and the community covered most of the rest through donations.
I think this training made a huge difference to the understanding and awareness of good consent practice during Kiez Burn 2022. Y'all are legends.
Who are Consent Academy?
The Consent Academy is an educational collective based out of Seattle, WA with volunteers all over the world. Our mission is to teach consent in all of its complexity, aspects, and potential. With over 60 years of education experience collectively, our approach incorporates disciplines of psychology, sociology, public health, psychotherapy, and personal coaching to create a systemic view of how consent impacts everyone, from the bedroom to the boardroom. We believe consent is part of everyday life and its practice builds stronger, safer, and more connected communities. For more information, visit us at www.consent.academy.
How would the proposal be implemented
A date has been picked -
May the 4th (be with you) Thursday June 1st 1400-1600 online. Arianna from Consent Academy agreed that if we get people to donate the equivalent to 100 euros she will do this private session for us.
I would like to have this decision made ASAP so that we do not have to ask the community to pay for this training. (Deadline 22/04/2023 ((less than 2 weeks before the proposed training))
No more effort will be needed from any other Realizers or leads. I will write comms and share it in the wiki to get people to sign up to the training.
What are the advantages of this proposal
Consent is our 11th principle. Last but certainly not least.
I have signed up to be trained as a trainer with Consent Academy and I Khan run the workshop AND train others next year or sooner
Having good consent understanding has a compounding positive effect. By having strong boundaries and clear communication you Khan help others do the same.
Kiez Burn and related community events can be and are intense spaces for many reasons. I believe that because of that we have a higher than normal duty to support each other in good consent practice
This training (particularly the Psychological First Aid section) is excellent for Wellfairys, Awareness, Site Leads and Rangers in any burn not to mention good for general life in supporting others around us!
What are the disadvantages of this proposal
The System will be pissed because self love is a revolutionary act 🤘
People who intimidated by a consent focused community will be upset
I think a decision should be taken to donate a "thank you" amount of 200 euros to Consent Academy from the KB budget.
I think this decision should be reached with:
the support of three Realizers or a community leaders
agreement from someone who has the ability to make the donation (financey people)
no serious vetos
