Men can stop rape

This is appropriate given today's explosions of "WTF?!" over the Queensland Government's new anti-alcohol ad:

Men Can Stop Rape is kicking off its 2008 Building Stronger Boroughs Campaign. The campaign consists of Men Of Strength Training Clubs - the premier primary prevention program for male youth in the country. MOST clubs have provided middle school, high school and college age young men with a structured and supportive space to learn about healthy masculinity and redefine male strength. Each year-long, multi-session Club builds members' ability to translate their learning into community leadership.
To start the campaign right, MCSR is holding a panel discussion called Women and Men as Allies in Preventing Men's Violence Against Women, which will be an exploration of the roles that women and men can and do play in the primary prevention of men's violence against women. Held in support of Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities, it will be an important solution focused discussion between leaders in the movement and the NYC community.

Where: John Jay College, 899 Tenth Avenue, NY, NY
