Differences in opinion and experience can spark controversy and division. How can we engage with respect and courage, and allow others to do the same? How do we respond when our buttons get pushed? How can we find the balance between free speech and hurtful/hateful speech and work with the gap between intention and impact? We invite you to explore these questions and move from con- fusion and dissatisfaction towards clarity and direction.

Dismantling Patriarchy: Our liberation as men depends upon it
Patriarchy dominates our way of living because of pervasive male privilege which includes the false but common beliefs that men are smarter, make better leaders, and are generally superior in all ways to women and to people who identify beyond the male-female binary. The widespread fallout from this is directly related to so much of our distress and the variety of oppressions that keep us apart.
And who else is in a better position to change this? Men have the power and obligation to end patriarchy and actively support a movement to have women and non-binary people take leadership.
