Join us at A CALL TO MEN’s 2017 National Conference: Many Faces of Manhood. On September 14-15, 2017, hundreds of people will gather in Minneapolis, MN for this important national meeting that examine healthy, respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith communities and around issues of gender.

The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault is pleased to be a National Sponsor of this conference. This entitles CALCASA members to register for a reduced fee of $250. (See below for details)

Both of the recent CDC publications, STOP SV:  A Technical Package to Prevent Sexual Violence and Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan: A Technical Package of Programs, Policies, and Practices, highlight the importance of approaches that engage men and boys as allies in efforts to prevent sexual violence and domestic violence. This conference will explore strategies, approaches and programs that contribute to collectively creating a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.

CALCASA staff will be attending this event as it will address topics vital to sexual prevention efforts. In addition to engaging men and boys, CALCASA and its national program PreventConnect are dedicated to addressing how the institutions of Sport can play a pivotal role in prevention. Through its national partnership, Raliance, CALCASA-PreventConnect is exploring strategies and approaches for sport as an avenue and platform for sexual violence prevention.
