The Planning Committee has just confirmed a special screening of the Canadian documentary A Better Man, followed by an interactive panel discussion.
"Illuminating a unique paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. It also empowers audience members to play new roles in challenging domestic violence, whether it’s in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change.”
Workshops and trainings on many other topics will also be offered. We encourage you view thekeynote presentations, workshops and training session descriptions.
