About the Series » Men Connect: Conversations in Masculinity

We invite all men, both newcomers, and regular attendees, to take part in one or more of these unique gatherings held at the Portland Public Library.

Men Connect provides a valued space and opportunity for men to have constructive and contemplative conversations around their experiences of masculinity.  We’ve found that this can be an important step toward expanding our understanding of what it means to be allies in ending gender-based violence. We very much value the importance of bringing all genders together toward this common goal; see bit.ly/partneringforsolutions and  bit.ly/mb2mrsvp for our related programs.

We invite all men, both newcomers, and regular attendees, to this monthly Men Connect gathering held at the Portland Public Library. Maine Boys to Men is committed to providing this space for men to explore the connection between gender and our culture of self-harm and violence. It is powerful to witness and be part of this group of men coming together to share, learn, and reflect openly about experiences with masculinity and complex feelings about this unique moment in gender justice.

This experience provides an opportunity to share our stories and develop a deeper understanding of how we relate to ourselves and others. A shared practice of self-reflection, open dialogue, and intentional listening expand our opportunities for connection and shared leadership in ending gender-based violence. We hope you will join us.
