Our mission is to build a community that allows us to address, unlearn, and disrupt toxic masculinity, sexism, & patriarchal norms. We acknowledge how harmful these systemic and cultural influences are to ourselves and others.
Our vision is to learn to value and embrace femininity, prioritize our healing, and practice accountability through group feedback. We envision a space where the strength of our relationships and shared intentions will guide us in challenging ourselves through discussion and practice.
Dismantling the Patriarchy meetings will be held once a week. This will be a multi-series program (through May). Meetings will begin the second week of May.
The weekly structure is as follows:
Week 1: Intro to theme
Week 2: dialogue w/ just questions
Week 3: exploration/implementation
