About the Event
The conversation will be two fold; a tight knit, informal discussion of what it means to be male in a changing society and how to navigate new terrains without a guide. The convening will touch upon the intersections of race and race baiting, accountability to the communities we serve, and ageism, discussing how to bridge the divide among generations.
