Join Community Safety Network and Dr. Jackson Katz for a multi-media presentation to encourage discussion about gender violence, raise awareness about the causes of violence in our society, and show how men and women can be proactive in preventing abuse.
Jackson Katz, Ph.D., is internationally renowned for his pioneering scholarship and activism on issues of gender, race and violence. He is the creator of the award-winning educational documentary Tough Guise 2 and author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help. A football star turned women’s studies student, Dr. Katz argues that men – not women – are responsible for stopping sexual and domestic violence.
He is co-founder of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence prevention programs in North America and beyond, and the first major program of its kind in the sports culture and the military. MVP introduced the “bystander” approach to the sexual and domestic violence prevention; Katz is a key architect of this now broadly popular strategy. MVP has worked extensively with numerous teams in the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NASCAR, as well as hundreds of Division 1, 2 and 3 college athletic programs, and all major branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Dr. Katz has been featured on numerous radio and TV programs, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, CNN, and C-Span.
