The ManKind Project USA Supports the International Men’s Day on November 19, 2017.

The national nonprofit organization is dedicating men’s groups across the country to the recognition of International Men’s Day, standing with men and women from over 60 other nations around the world.

“Recognizing and talking about the changing roles of men in our society, and how healthy and emotionally mature men can help heal some of our most damaging cultural problems is something we’re focused on at the ManKind Project USA.” says Boysen Hodgson, the Communications Director for the 30 year old organization.

From the International Men’s Day website, the objectives of International Men’s Day include a focus on men’s and boy’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models.

Boysen Hodgson was recently invited to a conversation on “In Search of Fatherhood,” a podcast launched by Diane Sears, the USA Chair of International Men’s Day. Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, the Founder of International Men’s Day, was also a guest on the show. Hodgson and Teelucksingh demonstrated significant agreement both on the challenges and opportunities facing men.

“The number of men stepping up to model a new kind of masculinity is exciting. And the partnerships that happen between men and women as a result are inspiring.” said Hodgson

The ManKind Project USA supports a network of over 700 peer-facilitated men’s support groups across the country, and provides a number of training programs for men to look honestly at their lives, learn skills, and find a sense of personal purpose in the world.

The mission of the organization is to “create a world where men act on their individual and shared responsibility for the future of humanity by initiating and supporting men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness and deepening community.”

Says Hodgson, “What we have been calling ‘men’s work’ for nearly three decades is now becoming mainstream. As more and more men recognize that they are no longer locked into rigid gender roles, there is tremendous opportunity for positive cultural change. I see International Men’s Day as part of this change.”
