Our
Programs

Our programming aims to remove barriers that Black men face in getting access, or staying connected with emotional care and healing by showcasing the importance of cultivating positive and healthier relationships,  intentional care, and fostering environments where we can all feel safe enough to hold and share the parts of ourselves that we so desperately want to dispose of or hide.

 

In addition, we create programming that encourages reflection on how they can advocate for themselves by challenging and expanding their understanding of masculinity and identity beyond societal concepts of gender, focusing on the linkages between storytelling and mental health, confronting harmful narratives and constructing alternative stories that lead to healthier perspectives.

To hear about upcoming programs & events, sign up for our newsletter.

We are currently developing new programs.
