Building Violence Free Communities: Boys and Feminism
This workshop will examine masculinity and misogyny to discuss intra-communal violence within our communities of color. We will use Hip-Hop (as a genre created by Black and Brown youth) to analyze ideas of masculinity and femininity, while learning how Hip-Hop and feminism has been used to transform communities and address intra-communal violence. Participants will also have the option to input their reflections and be part of a photo campaign towards the end of the workshop. Facilitated by Jocelin Hernandez.
Recommended Ages: 13 & UP
