The Men for Change Vision

VISION STATEMENT

Men For Change will be recognized and respected throughout Nova Scotia, across Canada and internationally for our work in supporting men and youth to transform violent culture by ending all forms of oppression and by promoting healthy and peaceful relationships.

MISSION STATEMENT

To create a healthy society by promoting and inspiring connection, inclusiveness and non-violence in all relationships.

CORE VALUES

Men For Change is guided by the following core values.  They influence our conduct individually and as an organization.  As members of a community we strive to have our actions reflect these values.

  1. We are male positive, pro-feminist, anti-racist and gay affirmative.
  2. We encourage men in their personal growth, healing and inner work as a way of fostering healthy models and contributing to better relationships with self, others and the community.
  3. We promote menís leadership and work as allies with others in challenging all forms of oppression in our lives, our families and our communities.
  4. We support and reflect the values of equality, diversity, nonviolence, healthy spiritual connectedness and ecological soundness.
  5. We are a visible and inspiring presence through our service in the community.

ACTIONS/ACTIVITIES

Our programs provide safe spaces in which to explore and demonstrate integrity, responsibility and compassion while simultaneously confronting menís learned patterns of personal and societal violence and abuse toward women, children and other men.
