With Father’s Day just around the corner, I connected with a fellow gender-violence activist and brother in the movement, Quentin “Q” Walcott, Co-Executive Director of CONNECT to learn aboutCONNECT’s 7th Annual Father’s Day Pledge to End Violence.

During this exchange, Trina and Q explored the following:

  • the role of men in ending violence against women;
  • how Black boys are conditioned toward stereotypical notions of masculinity, and how can we shift to new behaviors and attitudes;
  • the buffers that parents provide to protect against the impacts of systemic violence on Black male behaviors and attitudes; and
  • tips for parents to challenge traditional gender roles in our homes with our children.

For a special treat, at the conclusion of the call, Q shared a spoken word piece entitled “ManCHILD” in addition to reciting pieces from the Father’s Day Pledge Against Violence.
