        September 14 & 15, 2017

        A CALL TO MEN’s 2017 National Conference

        A CALL TO MEN’s 2017 National Conference will explore the Many Faces of
        Manhood. Through engaging keynotes, roundtable discussions and interactive breakout sessions, attendees will learn how the collective socialization of men creates a fertile ground for violence and discrimination against women and girls. Those same notions of sexism and inequality hold men hostage to the rigid norms of manhood.

        A CALL TO MEN will convene influential and passionate voices to examine healthy, respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith communities and around issues of gender. As men are empowered to be their authentic selves, we will collectively create a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.
