GOOD MEN PROJECT
A project that gives men the chance to speak up, challenge gender stereotypes and promote change.
The Good Men Project was a new initiative in 2018 that grew from conversations Hills Community Aid workers had with men where they identified that they would like to be part of social change, but found it hard to find a voice or to access opportunities to make a stand.
We believe that good men can help create change in society by being positive role models to other men and boys, by promoting equal relationships based on respect and by challenging unhelpful gender stereotypes.
Hills Community Aid invites local men aged 16 and over to be part of the 2020 Good Men Project by sharing their views on respect, gender stereotypes and what it means to them to be a “Good Man”. These conversations can happen via online survey, email, phone or video call.
Quotes from interviews, along with photos of the men who participate, will be used to create a display that will be uploaded to the Hills Community Aid Facebook and Instagram, as well as being published* in the local area.
We invite you to take your time to read through our 2019 Good Men Project, talk to friends, family and work colleagues about these and the other good men in your community and encourage the men you know to become part of the conversation to help break down unhelpful gender stereotypes.
Hills Community Aid looks forward to hearing the views of local men in 2020. If you are an individual, service, school or business who would like to get involved or to sponsor the Good Men Project, please contact our Safer Communities Program Worker on 02 9639 8620 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or access our online survey
