|Healthy Masculinity Summit Successfully Kicks Off Healthy Masculinity Action Project|
Men Can Stop Rape would like to thank all of the sponsors, participants, and allies of the Healthy Masculinity Summit on October 17-19. We would especially like to thank the Verizon Foundation for being the Co-Host Sponsor of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project. Check out some of our many photos from the three-day summit above and check out the Verizon Foundation's Samantha Yakal-Kremski's blog on the Healthy Masculinity Action Project here.
HMAP is a two-year project of Men Can Stop Rape, National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, Men Stopping Violence, Coach for America, Women of Color Network, and A CALL TO MEN. It is designed to raise the visibility of healthy masculinity and build a new generation of male leaders across the country who model non-violent, emotionally healthy masculinity, serving as positive change-makers in society.
Break the Cycle tweeted during the Healthy Masculinity Summit, “#healthymasculinity is building a society based on collaboration not domination.” The summit was built on the idea and practice of collaborative dialogue; the Healthy Masculinity Town Halls or Campus Conversations are similarly structured. You can find out more in the Healthy Masculinity Action Guide, originally distributed to all the summit participants, but now available to anyone interested in being part of HMAP. Along with the Action Guide, the HMAP Organizing Partners will provide technical assistance and training.
