Building Leadership in the 21st Century with Dr. Jackson Katz
Join The Advocates and The Community Library for an evening with Dr. Jackson Katz.
Dr. Katz is an educator, author, and filmmaker, who is internationally recognized for his groundbreaking work in the field of gender violence prevention and media literacy. Dr. Katz explores why we need “more than a few good men” to end the epidemic of violence against women. To quote Liz Plank, “Katz delivers a convincing case for a small fix that could fundamentally change our society in more ways than we can imagine.”
Dr. Katz delivers keynote addresses at numerous state, federal, and international organizations, agencies and conferences, including those at the United Nations and Peace Corps.
He is the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How all Men Can Help. He is creator, lead writer, and narrator of the award-winning Tough Guise documentaries, and is featured in the film The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at its Roots.
