Men Connect: Conversations in Masculinity

Men Connect provides a safe space and opportunity for men to have unifying, constructive, and contemplative conversations about their experiences of masculinity.

Register now for our next session is Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00. 

We invite all men, both newcomers and regular attendees, to take part in one or more of these unique gatherings held at the Portland Public Library.

Maine Boys to Men is providing this setting for men to explore the connection between gender and some of the more pressing societal problems surfacing around us. Since early 2018, we've invited men to come together for these important conversations that no one else is having. It has been powerful to witness and be part of this group of men coming together to share, learn, and reflect openly about experiences with masculinity and complex feelings about this unique moment in gender justice.

As a group, we are expanding our understanding of what it means to be allies with women. This experience provides an opportunity to share our stories and develop a deeper understanding of how we relate to ourselves and others. A shared practice of self-reflection, open dialogue, and intentional listening expand our opportunities for connection and shared leadership in ending gender-based harassment, abuse, and violence.
