Men’s Work Gathering Event

December 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Over the past few years, issues of rape culture, male dominance, homophobia, transphobia, and toxic masculinity have been pushed into the national spotlight – mostly by the labor of women, survivors, queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks. Men are being called to step up in big ways to also confront the ongoing hetero-patriarchal violence happening all around us. Many have answered this call by forming and joining groups of men who support each other’s growth, healing, accountability, and action.

While many of these groups exist in the Greater Boston area (See this database of local Men’s Work Groups), we are not very well connected to each other. We are calling on folks involved in these groups, and in Men’s Work generally, to come together, share space with each other, and deepen relationships between us. We believe that the more in community we are, the more we will be able to learn from each other and build together, and the more capacity we will have to collectively resist the patriarchy in all its forms.
