YWCA Men’s Breakfast

A Call to Action

Led By Men, For Men

We are at a cultural tipping point. The issues of violence and abuse against women are moving out of the shadows, and national attention is bringing local changes. Men’s engagement in prevention work is the untapped resource which can help end the violence, once and for all.

The YWCA Men’s Breakfast brings together leaders from every corner of our community with the vision, influence, and ability to make change happen.

UPDATE: The YWCA Men’s Breakfast is now sold out.

As the world says #MeToo, many are asking: What now?  With more than two decades of experience in the violence-prevention movement, Tony Porter, CEO of A Call To Men, has advised groups ranging from the NFL to the U.S. Armed Forces, and focuses on preventing violence against women and girls by examining the consequences of the limitations we put on boys and men. He turns the long-accepted intersection of violence and masculinity on its head, helping each of us better understand our role in transforming this once-in-a-generation movement into the community we want.
