Activist, Lecturer, Writer, Award Winning Documentary Filmmaker including his film “Hip Hop: From Beats and Rhymes” and new project called  “Hazing.” Byron has been  using his craft, his voice, and his writings to broaden and deepen how people think about gender violence, race, music, visual media, and food justice.


The Summit will explore the intersections between gender equity, racial justice, and healthy masculinities, the impact these issues may have on survivors of gender-based violence and community violence, and the opportunities to foster a society where everyone can be their full and authentic selves free from fear and violence.

Participants will strengthen and enhance their understanding about primary prevention and  community organizing, including initiatives led by men, focusing on towards gender equity, reimagined manhood, and social norms change; masculinity beyond cisgender men; and the roles that each of us can play to foster equity, safety and justice.
