    #ReimagineManhood Symposium


    WHEN: Friday, December 14

    TIME: 8:00 AM - 2:30 PM

    (Registration begins 8:00 am)

    WHERE: Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center

    14 Mechanic St, Southbridge, MA 0155

    Keynote Speaker:

    Tony Porter is an author, educator and activist working to advance social justice issues and Chief Executive Officer of A CALL TO MEN.  Porter is internationally recognized for his efforts to prevent violence against women while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood.  He is a leading voice on male socialization, the intersection of masculinity and violence against women, and healthy, respectful manhood.  Porter’s 2010 TED Talk has been named by GQ Magazine  as one of the “Top 10 TED Talks Every Man Should See.”  

    Porter is an adviser to the National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer and Major League Baseball, providing policy consultation, working extensively with player engagement, and facilitating violence prevention and healthy manhood training.  He is an international lecturer for the U.S. State Department, having extensive global experience including Brazil, India and Africa, and has been a guest presenter to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.  Porter has worked with the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.  

    He is sought after for his in-depth understanding of the collective socialization of men, and has served as a script consultant for the Emmy Award-winning television series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”  Porter is the author of “Breaking Out of the Man Box” and the visionary for “NFL Dads: Dedicated to Daughters.”  

    The Symposium:

    Gender-based violence is NOT a women's issue. Sexual violence is NOT about women vs. men.  Years of attitudes and beliefs rooted in patriarchy like "boys will be boys" are NOT only dangerous to all of us but they create a culture of misogyny.  The solution to ending sexual violence and rape culture requires that men and boys be actively involved in promoting gender equity, racial justice, and healthy masculinity.  Too often the focus is on teaching women and girls, trans and queer people how not to get raped, rather than teaching perpetrators not to rape and changing the culture that fosters violence in the first place.  

    Join us as we build upon last year's #ReimagineManhood Prevention Summit.  The timeliness of engaging men and boys in cities and towns, schools and workplaces across MA to address sexual violence cannot be overstated.

    IT IS TIME TO STEP UP!

    Jane Doe Inc. Training Institute Presents

    [EJ WEBINAR]: Identifying & Addressing the Housing Needs of Sexual Assault Survivors

    Trainer: Karlo Ng, Supervising Attorney -National Housing Law Project

    Kelsey Worline, Staff Attorney - Victim Rights Law Center

    When/Time: January 17 2pm -3:30pm

    About the Webinar:

    The majority of sexual assault survivors are victimized by a non-intimate partner and more than half of sexual assaults occur where the victim lives. Housing protections traditionally available to domestic violence survivors are often unavailable to sexual assault survivors. And those protections that are available to sexual assault survivors struggle to shift from the domestic violence paradigm and address the unique needs of sexual assault survivors. This webinar will provide detailed practice tips on how to advocate for housing remedies for sexual assault survivors. The presenters will discuss early lease terminations, emergency transfers, perpetrator evictions, and reasonable accommodations.

    About the Trainers:

    Karlo Ng, Supervising Attorney, National Housing Law Project: Karlo focuses on housing issues impacting survivors of domestic and sexual violence and trafficking; fair housing and civil rights, with a focus on the special needs and housing issues of immigrants and people with limited English proficiency. Before joining NHLP, Karlo was an attorney at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in Washington, D.C.  Karlo received her law degree from Northeastern University School of Law.

    Kelsey Worline, Staff Attorney, Victim Rights Law Center: Kelsey Worline represents rape and sexual assault victims throughout Massachusetts in a wide range of legal areas, including privacy, safety, and housing. As an attorney on the VRLC’s national Training and Technical Assistance grant, Kelsey provides individual consultations to Legal Assistance to Victims grantees and conducts on a number of topics including the civil legal response for sexual assault victims, identifying and addressing the housing needs of sexual assault survivors, and safety planning with non-intimate partner sexual assault victims.
