March 5-8, 2015, just before CSW 59 at the UN marking 20 years since World Conference on Women in Beijing, China
Mark your calendars! The Man Up Campaign, along with the Center for Men and Masculinities at Stony Book University, the American Men's Studies Association, and the MenEngage Network, is sponsoring the International Conference on Masculinities: Engaging Men and Boys for Gender Equality! The conference will run from March 5-8, 2015, in New York City and takes place just before the United Nations' annual two-week meeting of the Committee on the Status of Women (CSW). This particular gathering of the CSW marks the twentieth year since the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China, in 1995. Thus, this year's CSW meeting, sometimes referred to as "Beijing+20," takes on special significance.
Are You In The House West Coast!
We'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our team, Eugene Hung! New York-born and Texas-bred, he's been a husband for thirteen years and a father of two daughters, ages five and eight. He's also a credentialed social studies and math teacher, a licensed minister, a writer for Asiance Magazine, and an activist with experience advocating for women and girls, people of color, homeless folks, and the environment.
And in late October, Jimmie and Fred spoke to the young men of the Expanded Success Initiative, a project of the New York City mayor's office which equips Black and Latino high school boys for college and career success. Also speaking was another friend of Man Up, Jason Higgins, who serves as the program director for the New York Martin Luther King Center for Non-Violence.
How to conduct a one-year marketing campaign for greater awareness of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence.
We're pleased, and proud, to share with you the fruits of a lot of hard work by folks on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. It's a manual that details how to run a one-year campaign in Great Lakes Region of central Africa to raise awareness of violence against women and girls. The project was spearheaded by Jimmie, Emily Fischer, and Elizabeth Mayer here in the U.S., and researched and piloted by a number of activists in Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was funded through a grant from the World Bank, to whom we say thank you very much! Are You Man Enough? Manual Stop Sexual and Gender Based Violence. we
