MRI Hosts Zambian Activist for White Ribbon Day Events
MRI hosted Zambia Men's Resource Centre (ZAMREC) founder/director, Stephen Mbati, in Massachusetts from February 13-15. Following a reception and presentation at MRI's office in Springfield, Mbati accompanied Steven Botkin and James Arana to the White Ribbon Day ceremony at the State House in Boston. MRI and Mbati met with staff at Jane Doe, Inc. and Family Violence Prevention Fund. Several strategic planning conversations helped clarify priorities and direction for ZAMREC and Mbati who is interested in doing direct work with male perpetrators of violence in Zambia.
Additionally, MRI helped arrange a month-long internship for Mbati with Men Stopping Violence in Atlanta.
