Join in on an important conversation on Wednesday, November 19 at 7 pm at the Milliken Auditorium in the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City. Man Up: Stopping Violence towards Women through Youth and Social Advocacy brings together members of the NMC and Northern Michigan communities to engage in meaningful dialogue about the role of men as allies in shifting the culture that enables sexual violence towards women around the world.
Jimmie Briggs, co-founder and executive director of the Man Up Campaign, will lead this discussion on sexual and gender based violence through a compelling narrative of personal experiences that stand testament to the critical importance of teaching men and boys of all ages how to address these issues. Weaved throughout the evening will be comparisons of advocacy initiatives around the world from which participants can draw inspiration and learn to cultivate and strengthen allyship between people of all genders.
This presentation is an NMC Global Opportunities event in partnership with the NMC Student Life Office and NMC’s International Education Week.
