When communities support masculine-identified youth in accessing and living from their wholeness, our communities are stronger. Boys to Men Tucson (BTMT), Emerge Center Against Domestic Violence, Goodwill Youth Program, Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC), and the Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona (WFSA) have collaboratively launched a Healthy Intergenerational Masculinity (HIM) Initiative which aims to ensure that all boys and masculine-identified youth in Tucson have access, both geographically and logistically, to mentors, programs, and communities that promote more fluid and healthy forms of masculinity. This collective impact initiative focuses on opportunity youth, especially black and brown boys. The HIM Initiative also seeks to reverse the destructive effects of toxic masculinity by transforming the policies and systems that harm these boys.
