‘Male Students in Crisis’ conference to go ahead

When it looked like the Detroit Conference on Men’s Issues might not proceed due to a demand from the conference venue – a Hilton hotel in Detroit – for $25,000 to cover security costs, just two or three weeks before the conference was due to start, the sum was raised by AVfM in less than 22 hours. The conference subsequently went ahead at another venue, and was a triumph on many levels. The people who attended it will cherish their memories of the event for the rest of their days.

Sage Gerard (Victor Zen) is well-known to followers of AVfM, and we’ve featured quite a number of his wonderful videos. He runs KSUM – Kennesaw State University Men – and is much admired as an indefatigable activist. He wished to run a conference on 1 November – ‘Male Students in Crisis – and needed $13,000 to fund it. We’ve just learned that the goal has been reached, due in part to a generous female donor who sent in $5,000. Sage’s short video on the matter (3:08) has just been posted on AVfM, and it’s here.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
