Jackson Katz, founder and director of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) Strategies, speaks on “Men’s Leadership in Gender-Based Violence Prevention Is a Social Justice Imperative.”

Focusing on a variety of sectors and settings, such as education, sports, media, politics, clergy, and human services, Katz explores ways in which male leaders can address issues of sexual assault and domestic violence by examining and challenging the belief systems that sustain them, including the role of sports culture, porn culture, and other forms of popular media.


Admission is free. A reception and book signing will follow the talk.
