Employing different lenses of masculinity, this presentation seeks to enhance one’s understanding of the male survivors by asking participants to examine their own lenses of masculinity.
“It gives me great pleasure to send this message to you this week, which marks the 12th anniversary of the founding of 1in6, and the beginning of a long, fruitful journey serving male identifying survivors of sexual abuse and assault.”
On December 3, 2018, the board of directors of 1in6 officially announced Matthew Ennis as the new chief executive officer of the national nonprofit—one of only a handful in the world dedicated to helping male-identifying survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
“It’s like the first time you jump out of a plane, the first time you load a gun and shoot it, the first time you’re promoted. There’s all of this anxiousness and fear, so the effort it takes to come forward is herculean.”
“I’m thrilled to partner with 1in6 for a very special evening dedicated to helping advance their reach, serve even more of the millions of male survivors who have had unwanted experiences, and engage in dialogue about this important issue in the wider community.”
As 2018 draws to a close, we’ve been reflecting on the many friends and allies we have made in the past 11 years, and want to invite you to consider joining that growing group.
