Get involved by sparking conversations about making caring masculinity the norm. It's time to go beyond calling men out, to calling them
in to their full humanity and a shared vision of a partnership world.
It is an honor and pleasure to share with you the video of an exciting program at New York’s historic Great Hall of Cooper Union, focusing on “
Cornerstones of Democracy" -- a subject that is more timely than ever.
The program was organized and moderated by artist and philanthropist Friedrike Merck, and featured TV show host
Laura Flanders, Jamia Wilson, Executive Director of the
Feminist Press, Tony McAleer, Executive Director of
Life After Hate, and Riane Eisler, President of the
Center for Partnership Studies. Riane gave the final presentation, which was preceded by a short film about her early background and how it led to her research, writing, and advocacy.
We'd like to take this opportunity to again thank Friedrike for making this important event possible through her initiative, creativity, and generosity.
The October, 2017 event was sponsored by Cooper Union and the Center for Partnership Studies.
