Men's Work

Our important and profound theme of Women, Water & Peace is a core expression of the work inherent in the World Ancestor Concert.  And though women have always held fundamental and primary roles in the growth and nurturance and guidance of culture the world over, the role, presence and behavior of men has been complimentary, but also challenging, frustrating and fatally dangerous for the lives of women, the LGBTQ community, children and other men.

Given the high levels of violence, sexual, physical and emotional abuse and assault against women, trans people, children and others, an anti-culture of war and gun violence and abuse and exploitation of the Earth, men must move forward with deliberation and resolve to decrease the hold of toxic masculinity and damaging, narrow definitions of manhood on boys and men. This hard work is necessary for men to be better, fully loving and compassionate men, free of the constrictions and dangers of patriarchy, increasingly better advocates and supporters of women and others and more deeply empowered members of the Global VIllage and the Earth family of all living beings, active and empowered activists for a new global culture of peace.
