Expand and Inspire
The boys of ManUP are hosting a conference today at LDH to Inspire more men across the school board and to Expand the message that men need to speak out on Violence Against Women.
10 high schools, 4 middle schools, and 3 community groups are sending representatives to listen to the amazing lineup of speakers. The 200+ invitees will hear powerful messages from Glen Canning, Jeff Perera, and of course the boys of ManUP.
Crime Prevention Ottawa and the Ottawa Police Services helped fund what was supposed to be a low-key event; however, word of the conference spread and community interested skyrocketed! RedBlacks players have asked to attend. Carleton University is sending athletes, and Mauler and Rush from Hot 89.9 will be in attendence.
Good luck to the boys, and congratulations on all the hard work spreading the ManUP message.
