Join activist Chanel Contos as she speaks with adolescent health experts former Dolly Doctor Dr Melissa Kang and ABC TV presenter Yumi Stynes in a panel discussion for their bookWelcome to Consent: How to say no, when to say yes and everything in between.

The book is an inclusive, frank and funny guide to navigating consent for tweens and teens of all genders.

Consent is an extremely important national conversation and there is a call to provide better education to young people. Welcome to Consent tackles the topic in detail.

We encourage tweens 11 and older to attend this event with parents/guardians to help promote dialogue.
