MN MEN & MASCULINE FOLKS NETWORK
Fostering and creating a hub where men and masculine folks from diverse communities and organizations across Minnesota are connected and moving towards a collective goal of ending gender-based violence.
We believe that for there to be collective impact towards ending gender-based violence in the state of Minnesota, every community must be involved and uplifted. Towards this end, it means that men, masculine and male-identified folks must be engaged as a strategy towards ending gender-based violence. In order to do this, these folks must have a hub where they can learn from each other about promising or evolving practices, lift up community-driven solutions and understand how the issues of gender-based violence manifest in the different communities in Minnesota.
Understand how domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sex trafficking, and other forms of gender-based violence manifest in different communities in Minnesota
