Register for Men Can Stop Rape's Healthy Masculinity Training Institute in Washington, D.C.

Why should you care about healthy masculinity? Because men who choose it choose to be strong without being violent. It’s a life-changer that benefits women and men.

This January, participate in the Washington, D.C. Healthy Masculinity Training Institute to learn the theories and develop the skills that have shaped the Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP). HMAP is a national two-year initiative 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. 

Through three days of discussions about theory, interactive group exercises, role-playing, and multi-media presentations, the training institute presents participants with a framework to positively construct masculinity and to motivate men’s engagement in challenging the attitudes and behaviors that support violence against girls and women. This training is ideal for staff from universities, middle and high schools, law enforcement agencies, the US armed forces, statewide and local coalitions, service agencies, and government agencies.

The institute will provide you with the skills to promote healthy masculinity in your life, your organization, and your community and for you to organize a Healthy Masculinity Town Hall or Campus Conversation.

Become part of the Healthy Masculinity movement this January! Register for the Institute here.
