#ManUpInspire @ManUpLDHSS

Students from the Man Up group at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School in Ottawa host their fourth annual Man Up Inspire Conference at city hall to address men’s roles in reducing violence against women. Guest speakers at this event include sports radio host Ian Mendes, retired CFL player Moton Hopkins and Glen Canning, who shares the tragic story of his daughter Rehtaeh Parsons. Over 200 young men from other Ottawa-area schools come to hear the message and continue the conversation.

The Man Up group at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School was started in 2014 by a group of male students who wanted to change the way women are treated by men in our society. The group holds meetings throughout the year to discuss violence against women, situations that can arise in their daily lives, and how they can effect change in their community. (April 26, 2018)
