Sage Gerard is the president and founder of KSU Men, which he describes as “the first men’s human rights student organization to emerge from the A Voice for Men (AVfM) community and the first men’s rights organization in the state of Georgia.”
KSU Men is hosting a conference titled Male Students in Peril on November 1 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST. The focus will be on the broad spectrum of issues regarding educational equity for men and boys. I will be the keynote speaker at this conference. Other speakers include Dr. Janice Fiamengo, Dr. Miles Groth, and Paul Elam. The master of ceremonies will be Sage himself.
Much has been done to prepare and make this conference a success. The reality, however, is that KSUM needs your help raising the money needed to host the conference within 30 days of today. Sage has prepared a comprehensive introduction to the conference and KSUM here, which I encourage you all to read.
It’s hard to overstate the significance of a student organization tackling the issue of educational equity. The reality is that administrators of many higher education institutions will not touch this issue with a ten foot pole because of the politics and general culture of academia. A change in that culture must occur, and it has to come from the ground up.
By supporting this conference you would be supporting that change. This is some real pioneering work here, and future men’s issues groups will be able to draw from the success we create to improve their advocacy in their own communities.
With your help we can do this.
