Men In Progress

Men Unlearning Violence

MEN IN PROGRESS participants help each other transform their relationships with people, and with themselves. In time, men learn to respond instead of react, and intimacy replaces control. Using a model that identifies behaviors like emotional coercion, manipulation of resources, and stonewalling, as forms of violence, in addition to physical violence, the weekly group works to undo the internalized destructive beliefs about what it means to be a man in this society.

Weekly Drop-In Group

Each Tuesday and Thursday evening at GLIDE, a group of men meet with one primary goal: to acknowledge their own violence and help each other learn a new way of relating. Run by men and designed for men, Men In Progress is a Violence Intervention Program dedicated to working with all men in straightforward and practical ways on issues that affect their lives. The goal is to support men to gain understanding and strength in their relationships with themselves, partners, family, friends and community.

In weekly group, men learn to:
•    Take responsibility for their actions
•    Learn how to avoid and manage conflict
•    Have positive relationships
•    Create safety strategies in their home
•    Deal with personal issues
•    Live beyond survival

Group Meeting Time

Stage 1 Classes Every Tuesday, 5pm – 8pm
Stage 2 Classes Every Thursday, 5pm – 8pm

Participants are required to complete Stage 1 of the program to be eligible to attend Stage 2 classes.

Staff Facilitator Training Program

At GLIDE, we believe that the American workplace is full of violence, much of it in the forms of coercion through the control of resources, verbal abuse, and emotional manipulation. As part of our own commitment to Dr. King’s concept of a Beloved Community, some of our staff train as facilitators, not only to lead the weekly Men In Progress groups, but to work with staff and fundamentally transform the life of the organization.

Is Men In Progress right for you?

The first agreement for joining the group is a willingness to acknowledge your own violence and set an intention to stop it. Please read the list of controlling behaviors and take a look at the relationships in your own life. Court-referred participants are welcome.

Women interested in visiting may arrange through a facilitator.

#SundayFunday #Community #TenderloinSF #flashbackfriday to the #SummerOfLove! Long before our Real Talk blog, there was Venture, GLIDE's print publication in the 1960s. The entire August issue in 1967 focused on the Black People’s Free Store. Check the profile link to read more!

"What is a free store? Its first principle is to give whatever can be obtained to those who will take. This means clothing, furniture, appliances, food. In a ghetto area where physical and emotional needs are critical, where American Opportunity is an outworn joke, where the ravages of racism are as real as the pavement, a free store means revolution." #FromTheArchives #ThisMonthInHistory #UnconditionalLove #GLIDEHistory #SFhistory #vintagephoto #throwbackthursday to #ColdWar-era GLIDE. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day. 
#GLIDEforDisarmament #FromTheArchives #GLIDEHistory #disarmament #vintagephoto Today marks 72 years after the horrific bombing of #Nagasaki, Japan at the end of WWII. GLIDE remembers the thousands of innocent people who tragically perished in the initial atomic blast as well as the many more thousands who suffered the physical and psychological symptoms of radiation exposure for the rest of their lives: the mothers who lost their babies, the communities ravaged by increased rates of cancer, the elderly survivors who have developed new forms of leukemia and face great pain in their old age. .

We remember them. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day.
