The Mens Circle at UVic is a space where men and masculine-identified folks, including (but not limited to!) transmasculine, genderqueer, and non-binary folks, can meet to:|
- Connect with others with similar and shared identities
- Learn about the systems and structures that uphold gender-based violence
- Share lived experiences and stories
- Work on strategies for dismantling and challenging gender-based violence, dominant constructions of masculinity, and other structures of oppression on campus and in the larger community
Folks are invited to participate in unlearning and challenging patriarchy and other various interlocking forms of oppression in our minds and in our communities. This also means that its a space for folks who have caused harm to come and be a part of growth, healing, and accountability.
The Mens Circle was created by the Anti-Violence Project, and is accountable and in relation to them. We also strive to be accountable to the wider community in which we exist. We're wanting to be better at that; the group isn't perfect, and neither is the journey.
