Comprehensive Sexuality Education Conference

2020 Conference

*THE 2020 CSE CONFERENCE IS CANCELLED.*

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

As educators, advocates, and health care professionals, we have been paying close attention to the rapidly unfolding situation around COVID-19, the new coronavirus. After careful consideration, the 2020 Comprehensive Sexuality Education Conference Committee has decided to take the preventive measure of cancelling this year’s conference, which was planned for April 3.

We are taking this step out of an abundance of caution, in the public interest of keeping our communities safe and healthy.

We will be refunding registration fees for those who have already registered and paid.

We also weighed the pros and cons of rescheduling the conference for a later date, but ultimately concluded that we will wait to present our conference theme on Cultivating a Culture of Consent next year.  The Augusta Civic Center has been booked for April 2, 2021, so please save the date.

Until then, please don’t hesitate to reach out to MFP’s Education and Prevention team for comprehensive sexuality education resources: education@mainefamilyplanning.org or www.mainefamilyplanning.org/for-educators/. Wondering how to talk to young people about the current pandemic? Check out the coronavirus teaching and learning resources compiled by the New York Times.

You can get answers to questions about case numbers, travel advisories and other general COVID-19 issues at any time by:

  • Dialing 211 (or 1-866-811-5695), or
  • Texting your ZIP code to 898-211, or
  • Emailing info@211maine.org

We know that all of you, and your respective families, schools, and organizations, are grappling with similar (yet unprecedented) issues right now and we appreciate your understanding.

Stay safe and healthy,
2020 CSE Conference Committee
