“Boys Don’t Cry” Presented by the Domestic Violence Roundtable, March 10

Over the past five years, the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable has participated in the MA White Ribbon Day Campaign by engaging our local communities in local events designed to raise awareness and highlight the role of men and boys in ending gender-based violence. This year a group of male members of the Roundtable has worked together to promote discussions and create presentations to provide tools to help create more peaceful, healthy communities free of gender-based violence. The events began in February with a series of small group discussions on
“What It Means to Be a Man” and how to raise boys to be healthy and respectful men.

The discussions will continue on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at 3 PM in the Community Meeting Room at the Wayland Public Safety Building, 38 Cochituate Road, Wayland. The Roundtable cordially invites members of the community to a program featuring the screening of the White Ribbon Campaign video “Boys Don’t Cry.” Following the screening, there will be a discussion of the issues raised by the video led by Stephen Thompson and Jason Verhoosky, members of the Roundtable planning group. The program will also feature the raising of the White Ribbon Day Flag and a recitation of the Pledge to end violence against women. The program will conclude by asking for commitments to action.

To continue this discussion program participants are also invited to the Roundtable’s first ever half-day summit entitled “Tough Guys and Gentle Men: Healthy Men in the Age of #MeToo.” The summit will take place on Saturday, March 14, 2020, from 9:30 AM-2 PM at St. Anne’s -in-the Fields Church, 147 Concord Road, Lincoln. Registration for the summit is required. Details for the summit can be found at www.domesticviolenceroundtable.org.
