About this Event
There is a crisis amongst teenaged boys in American today. Many boys are taught to never show their emotions, and that they always must win. Simultaneously, boys in America today are at increased risks for depression, anxiety, suicide, and acting out in violent ways. Our boys need our help.
Ashanti Branch's groundbreaking work is featured in the critically acclaimed documentary, "The Mask You Live In."
This two-part event begins with a screening of the documentary, which follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity
Afterwards, join us for a facilitated conversation with Ashanti Branch, where we will explore together how we can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
This event is sponsored by Boys to Men Tucson, The University of Arizona Consortium on Gender-Based Violence, Emerge Center Against Domestic Abuse and the Pima County Youth Violence Prevention Coalition.
