Courageous Conversations With Ohio Men

We are excited to announce the OHMAN Healthy Masculinity Campaign – ‘Know Better. Do Better. Be Better.  This is a gender-based violence prevention social media campaign geared towards creating and supporting communities where all people can live free of violence within their homes, relationships, and communities.  As a partner and ally in this work, we know that you share in this commitment to respect, safety, and equality. 


As part of our current social media campaign, we are excited to share our upcoming ‘Courageous Conversations W/ Ohio Men‘ event.  This conversation will explore the intersections of  Masculinity in the LBGTQ+ community and will be aimed at transforming harmful gender norms, establishing gender equality, and inspiring young Men and Boys to learn active bystander skills. 


With our partners SARNCO, OAESV, BRAVO, and Stonewall, OHMAN will host a dialog regarding today’s societal issues surrounding young men and boys, specifically, how our young men and boys can we use our identities to influence social change.

Introducing The New Playbook: Standing Strong to Promote Non-Violence


On behalf of the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) and the Ohio Men’s Action Network (OHMAN), we are excited to share with you our “NEW VIRTUAL Playbook: Standing Strong to Promote Non-Violence an asynchronous learning platform that consists of 10 gender-based violence prevention modules geared toward creating and supporting communities where all people can live free of violence within their relationships, and share in their commitment to respect, safety, and equality. 


The purpose of The New Playbook is to enhance the quality of life on campuses by establishing healthier definition of masculinity and healthier norms surrounding gender-based violence. Training participants will each create an Action Plan that will be supported in its implementation by Glenn A. Harris, ODVN’s Assistant Director of Prevention. Each participant will be encouraged to use their new knowledge and skills to influence others and to promote healthy relationships and healthy sexuality.


By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Define violence and its impact on individuals and communities
  • Recognize behaviors that silently support violence perpetration
  • Understand the necessary qualities for anti-violence leadership within their social networks


And will leave the training:


  • Equipped with the tools to influence their social networks to prevent violence, and
  • With new opportunities to become involved in the statewide and national movements to end gender-based violence

Part of OHMAN’s statewide social media strategy, ‘Know Better. Do Better.
