Born and raised in the nation’s capital, Ben Privot unavoidably discovered his interest in social issues at an early age. Throughout his educational career, Ben had always found school to be a great place to start making civically-minded strides. The unique social atmosphere unifying a classroom education with extracurricular activities provides students a continual praxis where they can find success upon many platforms.

Now Ben is going back to school: this time to impact schools the way they have impacted him.

Lisa Wade And Consensual Narratives

Everywhere we go, we’re constantly receiving narratives around sexuality, sexual communication, and consent – in movies, through music, on television, amongst friends, privately with our partners, and just about anywhere one can think of. Unfortunately, not every one of these narratives we receive on sexuality is positive or even valuable.
