Event description

Description

On December 18th, we are going to watch A Better Man - a documentary that “shifts the conversation on violence against women” - and thereafter we’ll have a discussion using the discussion guides provided by the doc’s creators.

The purpose of this is to create a space for us to have conversations about intimate partner violence, justice and healing and for men especially, to have crucial discussions about our roles in ending gender-based violence.

Everyone is welcome and for the discussion portion, we will break out into smaller groups. Attendees will have the option of joining an all-gender group, an all-female group, an all-transgender group, an all-male group or propose a group of their own.

Format

  • 600-630 Doors open
  • 630-800 Opening remarks and doc viewing
  • 800-915 Small group discussions
  • 915-930 Closing remarks

Please feel free to bring food since this is running through the dinner hour. There is a cafe on site as well that will be open until 7.

Cost

Some ground rules for the discussion include:

  • Things shared in the discussion will not be relayed to others as gossip.
  • Nobody will be pressured to share things they don’t want to.
  • Responses from women and transgender people will be prioritized.

Can’t make the date but want to learn

  • If enough people express interest, we’ll create a second event for a later date.
  • You can watch the doc on your own here.
  • I’ve been compiling a resource doc to learn from, which you can access here.
