Men's Dialogue Sessions

Maine Boys to Men is providing a safe place for men to explore what it means to become active allies with women in support of gender justice and against gender-based violence.

This session will be held from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the University of Southern MainePayson Smith Hall, Room 207, 96 Falmouth Street, Portland, Maine 04103

Maine Boys to Men began hosting these dialogue sessions in early 2018. It has been powerful to witness and be part of this group of men coming together to share openly about experiences with masculinity and complex feelings about this unique moment in gender justice. Together we have expressed a desire to heal and hold ourselves and other men to a higher degree of accountability as we explore the potent pressures of our culture. Following requests from recent participants, we will spend time considering our role as male allies to others, exploring relevant cultural issues, and connecting with one another as a group of men. Please join us.

Maine Boys to Men is also offering a Partnering for Solutions day long workshop for men and women on Friday, May 18th.
