Richmond Sex Ed Project is a Richmond, Virginia-based organization hoping to help foster consensual relationships through interactive consent workshops and sex education. Our approach focuses on the development of empathetic communication skills, personal boundary awareness and community building to strengthen individuals' capabilities to increase consensual interactions and reduce harm within relationships of all kinds. 

RSEP was started in 2016 by Daire and Isabel- just two consent-loving wanting to create a comfortable space to openly discuss consent in a meaningful way. What is consent? What does it look like in real-life contexts? How do we navigate the gray areas? How can we increase consent within any sort of relationship? These were the guiding questions that helped us formulate the approach, techniques and format that we use for our workshops. We did some research. We had discussions, tapped into our shared knowledge and reflected on personal experiences. Then, we wrote out a script, chose a handful of prompting activities and set a date for our first workshop.

That event inspired us to keep going. We developed materials and our facilitation skills, and hosted a few more workshops in the community and at local universities. At every workshop, the group of participants brought new ideas, experiences and insight to the conversation- that’s what we loved about these events!- that kept our fire burning. As time went on, the Richmond Sex Ed Project was able to expand our potential through new activities and workshop styles, as well as work with a wider range of community hubs and organizations like Planned Parenthood. 

In early 2018, Kat joined the RSEP team. Kat brought a fresh perspective and a complementary skill-set to the table. Since then, RSEP has upped the capacity for both a public and online presence, connect with more people and even make cute stickers! At present, we continue to facilitate consent workshops around town and hope to continue the momentum for increasing consensuality in every way. We are always open to hearing your ideas!
