A CALL TO MEN: TheNext Generation of Manhood
Co-Directors:Theodore Bunch Anthony Porter
Primary Issue Area:
A CALL TO MEN: TheNext Generation of Manhood is a leading national men's organization addressing men's violence against women, and the eradication of sexism, while maintaining strong coalitions with women's organizations already doing this important work. We help to organize communities in order to raise awareness and get men involved in ending violence against women. A CALL TO MEN believes that ending violence against women is primarily the responsibility of men. Although historically it has been almost entirely women who have been at the forefront of addressing this issue, we think it is essential that men play a primary role. To do that, well-meaning men, men who, for the most part don't see themselves as part of the problem, need to get involved. By strategizing with groups across the United States, our vision is to shift social norms that define manhood in our culture, and produce a national movement of men committed to ending violence against women. A CALL TO MEN is unique in its ability to be affirming and respectful to the experiences of women while expressing genuine care and hope for men. Through seminars, workshops and other educational vehicles, A CALL TO MEN challenges men to reconsider their long-held beliefs about women, in an effort to create a more just society.
