Men Against Violence

What role do men have to play in ending violence against women? 
What can we learn from men doing progressive women's rights work in the global south? 

The Nicaragua-based Asociación de Hombres Contra la Violencia (Association of Men Against Violence - AHCV) is presenting a free public event on Wednesday, December 1, from 7:00 p. m. to 8:00 p. m.

Come to the Carol Shields Auditorium, Millenium Library, 251 Donald Street where Juan Benicio Jiménez Vásquez and José Lenin Muñoz Gallegos will be discussing the challenges and successes that they have experienced in their work with AHCV in Nicaragua. They will discuss challenging cultural and communal ideologies around gender roles and violence, and illustrate the importance of citizens creating change in their own communities.

There will be free refreshments.
This event is child-friendly and wheelchair accessible.

There's another presentation on Dec 2 at UW in case mornings are better for you!
