We Are Speaking! By Hannah Davis

Have you heard the exciting news? We are going to present at the Sex::Tech Conference held in San Francisco on April 1st and 2nd. What is Sex::Tech you may ask? The event is a two day annual conference hosted by ISIS, Inc and brings together people who are technology experts, educators, researchers, social entrepreneurs, community leaders and youth and parent advocates. Each day people will be presenting on fascinating topics such as understanding the youth perspective, building your own ipod/ipad/iphone application, sexuality, gender and feminism in the age of technology and being a sex-positive educator.

Our group of volunteers, including Vanessa Lopez, Jesus Guzman, Marcos Garcilazo, and myself, Hannah Davis, along with our group facilitator Shana Friedman, will be speaking in an outbreak session the first day. During our presentation we will be discussing our program here at SCPOC, the value of peer-led social media, how holistic health approaches looks at mental health and its impact on sexual health, and the strategies we have tried using to reach the most people during our campaign. All of us are extremely excited to get the word out about our hard work and desire to teach teens about mental health and wellness.

This event is highly encouraged for teens and young adults to attend. If you are interested in going you should check out the Sex::Tech's website at If you are already attending this fabulous event we at SCPOC hope you will come listen to us and enjoy the experience.
