Alexandria VA – The Woodhull Freedom Foundation reminds bloggers the deadline for scholarships to attend the 2016 Sexual Freedom Summit is this Sunday, May 1. Held August 4 – 7 at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia, the Summit is the one conference focused on sexual freedom as a fundamental human right in the US.
“A single voice can fill one space. But when bloggers take that voice and share it, the message is magnified hundreds and even thousands of times over,” says Ricci Levy, President and CEO of The Woodhull Freedom Foundation. “Bloggers are social justice warriors and we’re grateful to the Freeman Foundation for giving us the means to make it easier for bloggers to be at the Summit. We look forward to receiving submissions and look forward to announcing the scholarship recipients on June 1.”
Thanks to a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation, bloggers attending the Summit may apply to receive one of ten $100 scholarships. Along with the scholarship, those selected will also receive a discount on the cost of registration. Bloggers will be selected based on criteria including readership traffic and social media followership, with special consideration given to those who represent marginalized identities and communities.
Selected candidates will be notified via email on or before June 1, 2016.
Now in its seventh year, the focus of the Sexual Freedom Summit is the goal of the sexual freedom movement – global recognition of our fundamental human right to sexual freedom. The Summit is for everyone interested in sexual freedom – from activists, educators, students, attorneys, and clinicians, to people who are simply curious about how to make the world a freer place for all.
From gender expression to reproductive justice, LGBT rights to polyamory, sex work to spirituality, and much more, the Summit welcomes attendees to bring ideas and concerns to the table, all within a human rights framework. The four-day schedule of institutes and workshops, roundtable discussions and sessions cover a gamut of topics, ranging from geriatric sexuality, abuse, sex education, religion, gender identities, mental health, condom use, policy trends, intellectual and developmental disabilities, consent, sex work, and more.
