The Good Men Project has, for years, looked at and written about the changing roles of men in the modern world—and how that change affects all of the major issues of our day. Over 2.5 million people visit the site each month for a variety of reasons—because they care about the issues of men and boys, because they care about eradicating racism, sexism, and homophobia—or because the world is changing so fast that they want to find ways of keeping up.
At The Good Men Project, we have been following and leading in the reporting on issues of traumatic brain injuries and football for years. This is a huge societal issue in its own right. In addition, sports always act as a prism for larger social issues. The issues of concussions, CTE, and violence in sports are also part of a larger set of social questions in our culture about masculinity and the disposability of men.
The Good Men Project is a Participatory Media Company—we not only provide content you can read and share but we offer a multitude of ways you can actually participate in the all-important conversation about the changing roles of men in the 21st century. Our SOCIAL INTEREST GROUPS are an innovative new format—-weekly calls and community, activist building with people who are passionate about similar interests. Here is your chance to participate and create change.
This group—The Disposability of Men/CTE Social Interest Group — will begin by focusing on concussions, CTE, and violence, but we will also expand out to discuss the larger issues of how men are treated in times of war, in times of crisis, in the workplace, and how they are portrayed in the media. This is a way for people interested in these issues to come together to talk about it in a community of people who can learn, grow, and create social change together, whether through writing on the topic, creating videos, podcasts, activist campaigns, and building a network to amplify our message. The Disposability of Men Social Interest Group will create content, interface with other groups working in the area, and forge a path to actual social change.
This group will be led by Good Men Project Director of Special Projects (and former Sr. Sports Editor) Mike Kasdan.
The group will hold a weekly conference call for one hour every week. In between calls, our NEW Disposability of Men Facebook community will connect the community and allow further ways of communicating with the other members throughout the week.
Call Schedule: Every Wednesday at 7 pm EST / 4 pm PST
