Whether you personally see it as good, bad, or somewhere in between, communities in western and central North Dakota have been rapidly changing over the last few years.
This change comes in the form of revitalized towns, bustling growth, and healthy economies, but also in the form of maxed out social services, a changing culture where everything has a price, and increased violence against women and girls.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
Please join us, CAWS North Dakota and Men Can Stop Rape, to change the dominant stories of masculinity and spread the message of healthy masculinity. The Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP) is designed to raise the visibility of healthy masculinity and build a new generation of male leaders across the country who model non-violence, emotionally healthy masculinity and serve as positive changemakers in society.
Pre-registration is requested but walk-ins are always welcome.
