Mobilizing Men

Mobilizing Men to Prevent Violence Against Women: A Comprehensive and Community-Centered Approach

Training Overview

The next training will be held September 21st – September 22nd, 2017 in Decatur, Georgia.

For 30 years, Men Stopping Violence has engaged thousands of men as allies in preventing violence against women. Drawing from this experience, this innovative training will improve participants’ practices of engaging men by providing them with the requisite tools and understanding of foundational concepts such as sustainability, intersectionality and community accountability.  Focusing on both theory and practice, participants are invited into critical self-reflection and action planning using various modalities including small and large group discussions. The goal of this training is to strengthen participants’ capacity to organize men in their communities to prevent male violence against women.

Training Objectives

At the end of the training, participants will be better able to:

  • Situate their engaging men initiatives in both a historical and social context and in turn, more effectively address the roots causes of violence against women.
  • Summarize the components of the Men Stopping Violence Community Accountability Model.
  • Design creative and sustainable initiatives that attract and are inclusive to diverse groups of men.
  • Connect their engaging men organizing to other social justice initiatives in their communities.
