JDI's #ReimagineManhood Prevention Summit on December 14, 2017 exceeded our expectations. With 300 attendees, jam-packed workshops, an incredible keynote and panel, networking, learning, growing, sharing, and reimagining, we created a space that:

1. Encouraged men and masculine folks to challenge themselves and others about social norms and stereotypes of manhood.

2. Provided a space for men of all ages and backgrounds to be vulnerable with one another and really think about what kind of person they want to be.

3. Created a platform for change. Throughout the day we asked folks to share with friends and family #WhatIWillChange after the summit.

In the coming months, as local groups plan White Ribbon Day Campaign activities and other prevention and men's engagement initiatives, we will continue to deepen this conversation and replace the social norms that foster inequities and violence with ones that promote justice and safety.

Watch for more details about JDI's WRD activities. And please let us know what you've got planned.
