12 sessions from 1:30p.m. - 3:30 p.m. 
(From January to June)

 
We invite all who identify as men, and Spanish speaking men to join in conversations about manhood, fatherhood, relationships and what it means to be allies in the work to end violence against women.

The HD peer educators-in-training are an eclectic group, with varying degrees of education, work histories and experiences that have challenged them in the United States. These men share the common experience of struggling in their intimate relationships - with women, their children and the complex and onerous tasks associated with manhood. Many of them have expressed feelings of disempowerment and hopelessness in this country.

Marlon Walker, Coordinator of Men and Boys Programs, facilitates dialogues with this group, creating communion while simultaneously challenging and holding them accountable for their attitudes and behavior. Over the course of six months, Marlon stimulates conversations about manhood by taking a look at the people, places and experiences that have shaped their thinking about what it is to be a man.

By examining the privilege and entitlement these men have in their communities, HD explores how their perceptions of manhood led them into their relationships with women, presumptions and expectations within those relationships, and their experiences as fathers. Marlon creatively draws parallels between the often disempowering histories these men have experienced outside of the home with the power and control they may choose to exert over their loved ones.

The men of HD have signed contracts committing to continue the work of exploring this dynamic, changing their attitudes and having conversations to transform other men in their communities.
