Pre-conference sessions are designed for college students and include topics on Intimate Partner Violence, College PrEP, and a Truth Talk student convening. General conference topics include Medical Mistrust, Intersectionality, Spirituality and Sexual Health, Understanding Gender Identity, Stigma & Myths, Sexual Health in Communities of Color, Sexual Wellness, and Sexual Health for All Ages.

G.A.M.E. Time

G.A.M.E. Time focuses on the issues facing both boys and men of color and the socio-economic factors that impact their lives. The goal of this initiative is to provide Guidance, support Achievement, and instill the principles of Manhood, and positive Encouragement to all boys and young Men of Color. The origins of the program started with an event, "Guys Night Out", on Father's Day weekend in 2018. "Guys Night Out" created a safe space for men and young males to discuss major topics for males, participate in interactive learning, and have fun with food, especially young men without a father in their home.


Woman2Woman is the newest initiative designed to offer monthly forums/discussions to encourage and support women and girls as they embrace the ideologies of self-awareness, reclamation, culture, and leadership. Participants will strengthen and grow in a manner that improves social conditions and positively impacts the underlying structure of the family, community, and society.
