Sex Education in ASL is now offering online workshops! 


All workshops were developed based on the feedback from past participants and community members striving for continued education and equitable investment in the interpreting field.  With a wide variety of sexuality topics to choose from, our workshops are specifically designed for ASL professionals and community members. 


All workshops will be live and interactive with various activities. In 2020, Zoom fatigue is real, but rest assured with Bethany’s dynamic presentation style and the use of hands-on activities, breakout room discussions, bio breaks, and polls to participate, workshops will be engaging and educational.  


All workshops will be held virtually via ZOOM. You'll need a computer with a strong and stable internet connection (minimum of 5MB download speed). You can test your internet speed before registering here. (linked attached) You will receive more information about the workshop once you are registered.
