My tweets about this conference will have the hash code #MNman09. I will also group my tweets on tomorrow's sessions here at the end of the day.
Below are today's tweets:
The 1st day of conference began with an intro by Frank Jewell & Chuck Derry about the work of MN men's action network. They need and want more men in Minnesota to get involved and be a part of the solution.
Opening: Mark Kinde, Injury & Violence Prevention, MN Dept Health: need shared commitment, habit change, culture change.
opening: Patty Wetterling, Prog Dir SV Prevention, MN Dept Hlth: need to have vision of what we want then can take the needed steps.
Chuck Derry: taught early to devalue women by being told, "Don't __ like a girl." created sense that boys and men superior.
Robert Jensen: How porn pop culture shape toxic masculinity emphasized power over model, porn eroticizes sexual/racial hierarchy.
For anyone who wants to contribute to help defray my costs, I've created a Chip In item.
