Challenging Social Media Policies That Keep Us Silenced
Plaza Ballroom ◆ August 5, 2022 ◆ 10:15 am – 11:45 am ◆ Will be Streamed
We invite sexual health and freedom advocates to join us in this conversation and action planning session. Heart to Hand’s Sexual Health in Everything (SHE) Campaign is dedicated to creating space for Black women ages 18-30 to talk about sex and sexual health in open and honest ways. In early 2022 while looking to boost their social media post for the annual SHE Empowerment Expo, Instagram advertisements promoting the event were rejected per Facebook policy against advertisements focusing on sexual pleasure. This session will explore how social media “decency” standards are used to police sexual health messaging and limit access for structurally marginalized people.
