At CEE, we come together to foster learning and inclusion, build community, and have fun. View our upcoming events below.



Parent Education
Cindy Pierce

Monday, November 12
7:00-9:00 PM

Cindy Pierce is a leading social sexuality educator and comic storyteller who has been performing her one-woman comedic show and providing educational program around healthy sexual behavior and choices since 2004. Combining humor and research, she enlightens people about the choices and obstacles confronted in today’s media-driven world. As the youngest of 7 children, Cindy grew up seeing a lot! As an athlete on co-ed teams, she found herself having dual citizenship, accepted and “in” with both boys and girls. A self-proclaimed ‘incident magnet,’ Cindy frequently finds herself embroiled in awkward or embarrassing situations—which she characteristically interprets as moments of humor and learning, from which her audiences benefit. Cindy is the author of SEXPLOITATION: Helping Kids Develop Healthy Sexuality in a Porn Driven World and is co-author of Finding the Doorbell.
