A CALL TO MEN
Description: 

September 14 - 15, 2017

A CALL TO MEN's 2017 National Conference will explore the Many Faces of Manhood. Through engaging keynotes, roundtable discussions and interactive breakout sessions, attendees will learn how the collective socialization of men creates a fertile ground for violence and discrimination against women and girls. Those same notions of sexism and inequality hold men hostage to the rigid norms of manhood. A CALL TO MEN will convene influential and passionate voices to examine healthy, respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith communities and around issues of gender. As men are empowered to be their authentic selves, we will collectively create a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.

Conference Speakers Include:

DR. BETH RICHIE Director, Institute of Research on Race & Public Policy, University of Illinois - Chicago

RUS FUNK Co-Founder, North American Men Engage Network WADE DAVIS Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, YSC

TONY PORTER CEO, A CALL TO MEN

BECKI MASAKI Co-Founder, Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

NICOLE MATTHEWS Executive Director, Minnesota Indian Women's Sexual Assault Coalition

Description: 

APSAC pioneered the Forensic Interview Training Clinic model to focus on the needs of professionals responsible for conducting forensic/investigative interviews with children in suspected abuse cases. Interviews with children have received intense scrutiny in recent years and increasingly require specialized training and expertise. This comprehensive Clinic offers a unique opportunity to participate in an intensive 40 hour training experience and have personal interaction with leading experts in the field of child forensic interviewing. Developed by top experts, APSAC's curriculum teaches a structured narrative interview approach that emphasizes best practices based on research and is guided by best interests of the child. Attendees will receive a balanced review of several protocols and will develop their own customized narrative interview approach based on the principles taught during the Clinic and contained in the 2012 APSAC Practice Guidelines on Forensic Interviewing in Cases of Suspected Child Abuse.

Time: 12:00 - 1:30pm (Central)

While sexual violence impacts every demographic group, myths about sexual violence within Latin@/x communities create misconceptions around culture and race. By engaging parents, religious leaders, survivors and community members, we can promote awareness, culturally-specific outreach and community engagement toward demystifying sexual violence within Latin@/x communities.

Objectives:

  • Build upon personal strengths with cultural identity to work with community leaders to build bridges with community.
  • Identify three leaders and others that we don’t normally see as leaders.
  • Identify and train organizations on the changing needs of Latin@/x communities

Presenter: Maria Jirau-Torres, National Sexual Violence Resource Center
