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.

Maine Boys to Men is providing this setting for men to explore the connection between gender and some of the more pressing societal problems surfacing around us. Since early 2018, we’ve invited men to come together for these important conversations that no one else is having. It has been 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.

As a group, we are expanding our understanding of what it means to be allies with women. 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 the gender-based harassment, abuse, and violence.
