AGES/GENDERS & CONTENT WARNING: The 2019 Call to Action will involve conversation around difficult topics such as sexual assault and rape, domestic violence, etc. Though any age is welcome with a parent, material is targeted for high school and above. All Voices of Men events are open to people of all genders. It’s important we do this work in partnership with women as well as people who are gender non-conforming. That said, in general our target audience is teen/adult boys & men. Our typical event will be about 75%-85% men and boys.
FREE LIVE-STREAMING: INFO & RESOURCES
LIVE-STREAM WILL BE WATCHABLE FROM THIS PAGE, WHEN IT IS AVAILABLE. YOU CAN WATCH IT TRULY “LIVE”, OR AT ANY TIME AFTER THE EVENT (scroll back to the start of the event, if needed).
Test video & sound prior to the annual Call to Action — if you are able to play any of the videos below, you should be OK. Press play, then click the box in the bottom right corner to make it “full screen.” Though we don’t expect issues, we encourage live-stream host sites to have someone who is knowledgeable about IT issues available at your site.
Advertise the event. Download a VOM poster (coming soon) which has a blank spot on poster to list time and location of the viewing. Also, share the highlight video from previous Call to Action events (available on the Call to Action page).
Seek parent permission if at a school. The 2019 template parent permission form is here: Permission Slip Template Voices of Men (coming soon)
Consider food & drink for your event.
Ensure enough seating, large enough room for everyone, and that video & sound can be seen/heard by everyone. There is a 10-minute conversation period during the event — set-up your room to facilitate small-group conversations (6-10 people).
Consider scheduling an extra 30-60 minutes of gathering time immediately following the annual Call to Action event to discuss what was learned, and what can be done locally. Possible post-event conversation questions include: What did you learn, what impacted you? What helpful actions can you take yourself? What is good about our local school/business/community culture, and what could be better? What can we as a group do to make improvements in our school/business culture.
Viewing Time: approximately 85 minutes.
Gender make-up of attendees: our annual Call to Action is open to people of all genders. We target men and high school-aged boys, but welcome people of all genders. Our typical audience is approximately 75-85% male.
