This webinar will discuss the field of engaging men for healthy masculinities and gender justice, and provide an overview of the work of the Men's Story Project (MSP). We'll then discuss ways to bring the MSP to your campus or community, including MSP film screenings, workshops and trainings. In particular, we'll discuss the MSP training cohort that's launching this October, to support the creation of new campus/community productions.
