The second annual “Paving the Way to Healing and Recovery: Conversations with Young Men of Color Who Survive Violence” conference will be on April 25, 2016! It is important to us that this exploration of promising practices lift up the experience not only of some of the larger nonprofits working in this area, but equally, the voices of grassroots organizations, experienced practitioners, and crucially, the young men themselves.
We need your wisdom! If you work with young men of color who have survived violence and have ideas and experience about what works in supporting them through their pain and healing, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. We are especially interested in authentic dialogue that includes the lens of race, racism, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, and class.
If you would like to collaborate with us and present at the conference please submit a proposal by February 5, 2016.
This conference will build on our 2015 event, “Paving the Way to Healing and Recovery: Conversations with Young Men of Color Who Survive Violence.” You can find more information on the first conference here.
