Event description
What is it about the way boys and men are socialized that might make them more prone to radicalization, or more easily radicalized?

About this event

From Incels to QAnon, and white supremacists and ISIS, why are so many of the world's radicalized extremists young men? What is it about the way boys and men are socialized that might make them more prone to radicalization, or more easily radicalized? Does radicalization target men specifically?

As an organization, Next Gen Men is particularly attuned to gender-based violence born from misogyny, and we've been heart-broken to see the increase in young men endorsing incel ideologies.

We will be looking at the overlaps and connections between the different extremist ideologies and the role the internet plays in radicalizing youth, there's so much to unpack at this month's circle event! What can we do if we’re worried someone is falling into extremist spaces or other kinds of radicalization? How do we recognize the patterns of someone becoming radicalized? How can we support boys and young men to prevent or interrupt radicalization? What do we need to do as a society to move away from these ideologies?

Join us on August 19th at 7pm Mountain Time for a discussion on the relationship between masculinity, radicalization and how that turns into violent extremism, as well as the role we can all play in building a safer world for everyone.

Let's stick together.

Join Next Gen Men Circle, the digital home of the brave conversations we need to have.

We're hosting conversations about the things that matter to us — gender equity, inclusion, mental wellness, healthy relationships, and social justice. Our focus is typically on how men and masculinity fit into the feminist movement, but folks of all genders & backgrounds are welcome to attend. Though these conversations are geared toward adults, youth have sometimes attended, just let us know at info@nextgenmen.ca if you'd like to bring a youth.

Hope to see you there!
