Men in the Age of #MeToo – A Conversation Among UUCC’s Male-identified Folks
The #MeToo movement, started a decade ago and gone viral in recent years, has drawn needed attention to the long-standing problem of men sexually harassing women, often with little to no consequence. This is a conversation for male-identified people at UUCC to reflect on our beliefs, roles, and responsibilities. What have we learned from the #MeToo movement? What are the implications for us as men at UUCC? How does this connect with our Unitarian Universalist values?
Our facilitator, Rev. Rob Keithan, is the half-time Minister for Social Justice at All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC. In his other work, Rob leads projects and programs on the intersecting issues of religion, race, gender, and sexuality. Most recently, he has led reflections sessions for men at All Souls on the #MeToo movement. Rob currently serves on the UU Ministers’ Association Ethics Committee, charged with strengthening the professional standards for clergy related to ending racism and sexism. Rob lives with his wife and their two daughters in Washington, DC.
Please join Rev. Keithan and Rev. Anthony Jenkins for this important conversation on Saturday, December 1, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at OBIC, Sanctuary A.
