The conversation around the #MeToo Movement seems to sometimes pit boys against girls, men against women, and a good portion of boys and men aren’t quite sure where they fit into the conversation. Some may want to be part of change and not know how to get involved.

A discussion for boys and men, girls and women about the issues surrounding the #MeToo Movement will take place Thursday, March 14, from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m.

Others may be angry or frustrated with the way boys and men are clumped into a category that sheds a negative light. This could leave parents of sons and daughters struggling with how to have this conversation.

In this discussion, we’re going to talk about strategies to bring everyone together as a school, neighborhood, community, etc. to overcome sexual violence, regardless of how one identifies according to gender.
