Want to learn more about the role of men in ending sexual and gender based violence? Male Allies, a program of the Sexual Assault Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC), is offering a free, introductory community workshop in order to have a constructive and open dialogue. We will talk about gender, masculinity, sexual violence and bystander intervention. We will offer the opportunity to think critically about the ways in which we contribute to a culture of sexual violence and how we can take tangible steps to create change.
Organizer of Intro to Male Allyship
The mission of the Male Allies Program is to engage boys and men, with their unique ability and responsibility, in ending systemic and everyday forms of gender-based violence. We do this through programming that provides alternative narratives of masculinity, opportunity for self-reflection and dialogue, and challenges harmful language and behaviour.
