The group, Gentlemen, is described as an activist group working toward gender equality. The group is dedicated to encouraging healthy and respectful masculinity; challenging sexism and other forms of oppression; and supporting HAVEN in its mission to end gender-based violence.
“Although the majority of gender-based violence is committed by men, we know most men do not condone such behavior,” explained one of the HAVEN Prevention Education Specialists, Mark Nesbitt. The new program provides a place for men to speak out about issues and learn what they can do to help stop the violence against women.
“Participants will explore the important role men can play in ending gender-based violence in their community and come up with positive changes all men can make,” Nesbitt continued.
We offer two different meetings. The first is held every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Torino (201 East 9 Mile Road, Ferndale). The second is held the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 a.a. - noon at HAVEN (30400 Telegraph Road, Suite 101, Bingham Farms).
