The purpose of this workshop is to educate, inform and inspire organizers who put on public events to take steps to proactively protect the community they serve from Sexual predators.

Ultimately, this information is also to raise awareness to attendees of public events as well!

Sexual predators in our community aren’t something that we generally like to think about when putting together gatherings and events. However, as our community is very kind, loving, open and accepting it makes us prime targets for those who would seek to take advantage of those things.

With that in mind, I have founded the Gorgon Network as a prevention tool to be used to better protect our communities.

The core of everything we discuss will be accessible on www.gorgonnetwork.com I encourage all workshop attendees to use the website as a tool to take the message back to their local communities and spread the message themselves to others who would benefit from it.
