Cassandra came to our campus for the first time in 2016, and that event was such a success that students were asking to have her come back by name! Cassandra puts on amazing presentations that are culturally sensitive, engaging, and fun! She is just a pleasure to work with! We promise you that if you invite Cassandra to your campus, you will not be disappointed!
It was a great night and I am so glad to have had the chance to learn from you. So much of what happens on campus is programming on prevention and not enough on what happens next. Thank you for filling such an important niche!
Cassandra led a phenomenal workshop on incorporating transgender care into sexual assault forensic exams. It was clear she had deep knowledge of sexual health and of how to apply sexual health information in a clinical setting while also centering a survivor’s/patient’s needs. She is an incredibly skilled facilitator and I’d highly recommend her for any sex education needs!
I believe sex education should be a few things: LGBTQ-centered, anti-racist, trauma-informed, disability-inclusive, and aware of a spectrum of relationship structures.
In short, I believe that sex ed should be reflexive, empathetic, and honest.
When it comes to sex, we assume that we have to get everything right the first time because that’s what media and society have told us.
It is very common to not experience a post-traumatic response until long after the sexual trauma itself.
