Event description

Description

Let's dismantle the patriarchy together!
We'll be going through a 3-hour curriculum beginning promptly at 7:45, that I'll be facilitating. It includes:
- The evolving definitions of terms like "patriarchy," "feminism," and "sexual assault"
- An intensely personal moral inventory exercise that identifies the ways we both perpetuate and are impacted by the Patriarchy
- Discussions, role plays, and interactive exercises
- 25 concrete actions to become better men, for ourselves and for others
We end by making concrete commitments to each other towards a specific action.
Attendance: This is a FREE workshop with optional donations accepted. Attendance is capped at 12.
Space: This is a loving and completely confidential space. This is also a "brave" space, rather than a "safe" space, because all opinions are welcome, including those that do not fit liberal orthodoxy (Though I personally am a queer, liberal, feminist, and facilitate from that perspective)
Food: I'll be serving vegan chile so you can enjoy a free healthy dinner. (I eat meat; it's just easier this way). If you'd like, please bring snacks or non-alcoholic drinks.
Arrivals: Late arrivals are NOT OK. We need you fully present. Please commit to this work by showing up for the full session.
Preparation: As preparation, please do some reading and thinking to take yourself into a space of open-minded curiosity and exploration around sex, power, masculinity, femininity, patriarchy, gender roles, sexism and/or feminism. There's a great list of articles to start with here: https://www.evolve.men/resources/
Participants: This workshop is welcoming to ALL male-identified people, and will be held in a wheelchair-accessible apartment building, with wheelchair accessible bathrooms. There is no smoking allowed, and a low-to-no-scent policy applies.
