Spring 2020
a newsletter about current events & updates
Greetings!
I decided to do an interim eNews because so many things are changing. Basically anything that involves a gathering of people has been cancelled. There is tons of information about the virus everywhere you look so I'm not including any links here.

Be well!
Hyla
If you want something added to this newsletter - please click here! The best thing to send me is a PDF or JPG of a poster describing your announcement. Do not send me press releases. They don't work well in this format and I don't have the time to reformat them. Thanks!
opportunities
We're currently looking to recruit males from Southern Oregon (ages 13-19) to participate in a live, filmed conversation (which now will be moved to a pre-writing assignment and potentially online video chat). This international violence prevention film project will include 10 recorded conversations with young men in disparate communities discussing their purpose and place in the world.
Through this film series, we hope to demonstrate that dialogues of this nature are not only possible, but essential in the effort to prevent violence and sexual assault perpetrated by adult men. 
If you are interested in participating, contact Abram Katz, Heartisan Foundation
