Description: 

Across the country, groups of male students are making their voices heard! More and more men are finding the courage to say “no” to ideas of manhood and relations between the sexes that aren’t good for women and aren’t good for men as well. They’re speaking out against date rape and violence against women. They support gender equality. Some work through residence life or student activities offices, others through women's centers and counseling programs. Some are campus branches of national organizations like MVP, White Ribbon, Men Can Stop Rape, or 1 in 4.
These men face common problems: How to have an impact? How to find positive ways to get their message to other campus men? How to deal with backlash, to work in partnership with women’s groups, to recruit and sustain their groups?

For the first time, campus-based pro-feminist men's groups from across the country are meeting together. To share resources., trade their best ideas, discuss strategies, and simply find out what’s happening on other campuses.
COSTS: Registration: $10 students. $50 other. On campus room & board at reasonable rates.
FUNDING: We encourage you to start checking out funding opportunities on your campus. We hope to have some funds to help a bit with travel costs.
