Extra Study-Into-Action Workshops

In the summer of 2012, CMS continued its work with men from Round 2 of the Study into Action Project. Interested participants joined facilitators to set up breakout sessions that focused on specific topics that participants were unable to discuss in depth during the previous Study into Action sessions.

Men of Color and White Women Discussion
Pornography Discussion
Transformative Justice Discussion

The discussion on pornography built on the mutual trust, and shared political analysis and understandings we had developed in the Study-Into-Action group. We were able to welcome new participants into the discussion and delve deeply into topics that are highly fraught and shame-laden. Many of us had never had the opportunity to reflect on and open up about the role of pornography in our sexuality and intimate relationships in this way before. – Steve, educator and former SIA participant
