Healthy Masculinity Action Project Holds Training and Town Hall in North Dakota

A diverse group of people consisting of law enforcement, tribal men and women, sexual assault and domestic violence advocates, educators, military representatives, state political staffers, and Watford City community members gathered on July 31, 2013 in the heart of the Bakken Formation to discuss Healthy Masculinity and the Oil Patch.

The day before, on July 30, 2013, Men Can Stop Rape conducted a day-long Where Do You Stand? bystander intervention training as part of the launch of the North Dakota Where Do You Stand? campaign, consisting of messaging and images tailored to the state. Campaign materials were distributed at the training and the town hall. Get more information about both events here.

The Healthy Masculinity Action Project trained over 60 new Healthy Masculinity Ambassadors at three day Healthy Masculinity Training Institutes in Washington, DC and New York City. These ambassadors will take the principles of HMAP back to their communities to hold Healthy Masculinity Town Halls and other events. Check out more pictures from the trainings here.

  


Stay tuned for more information about what we've been up to this summer including our annual Summer MOST Clubs (with our youngest ever MOST Club member in the second grade); our activities promoting ASK DC to DC's interns, young professionals, and military service members; and much more!

Sexual Violence Not a Military 'Cancer,' But a Crisis at All Levels of Society

Check out Men Can Stop Rape Deputy Director Rachel Friedman's response to the recent focus on military sexual assaults here.

Rachel writes, "The news stories that I read, see, and hear about seem to exceptionalize sexual assault to whatever community it has most recently and most publicly reared its ugly head. When I hear people talk about sexual assault issues, it is often in the domain of what others are doing wrong. The fact is that sexual assault, sexual violence, rape, sexual abuse, incest, sexual harassment, power-based violence, and any other descriptive word we’d like to use is not just one community’s or population’s or institution’s problem. It is going on everywhere – from sea to shining sea, in the hood and in the board room, in athletic departments and in the science lab, from the mouths of politicians to the jokes of comedians – and it is affecting all of us."

Men of Strength Clubs Honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month

MOST Clubs across the country were busy in April with special Sexual Assault Awareness Month activities. Here's a sampling of a few of them:

  • In Baltimore City, MD, City Springs Elementary/Middle School MOST Club hosted a youth forum to support and bring awareness about sexual assault. The event featured inspiring speakers and made an incredible impact on the participants.
  • In Washington, DC, MOST Club members across the city held open meetings to introduce MOST Club and concepts of healthy, nonviolent masculinity to their peers.
  • At the college level, two Campus Men of Strength Clubs held Healthy Masculinity Campus Conversations as part of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project. The Florida A&M University MOST Club held a day long mini-conference which included tables of resources, town hall conversations with panels of experts, a trip to a local teen center, and a Take Back the Night March. The George Washington University MOST Club also held a Campus Conversation featuring student leaders from fraternities, student government, and activist organizations.
