Ethnic Family Services, a service division of Shakti Legal Advocacy & Family Social Services Inc. is hosting a men’s hui at their premises on Saturday 29th October. This is a call to all our ethnic brothers, sons, fathers, friends to make a stand and support the cause of ending violence towards women. Remember it takes only a few good men to be silent for the bad ones to win!
At the men’s hui/meeting, we will:
● brief on why we’re supporting this campaign
● ask for your ideas in how we can reach out to more ethnic men, and their families about this cause
● get to know what works for Asian, African and Middle Eastern men, what differs in our approach to men re family violence, and identifying possible men’s concerns around this campaign
Trigger warning: this is not about “shaming” or “blaming” men or a “confessional session” for the injustices
that women have experienced. It is a call to get men involved in making social change happen for themselves
as men and effectively for women, families and children in the community. And who knows, it could even be
fun, an opportunity to learn and a great way to network with people from diverse communities.
You do not have to commit in organizing anything at this stage. We ask that you attend this meeting for
discussion and you then decide how you’d like to be involved going forward.
