YW Calgary proudly presents actor, former NFL player and one of TIME Magazine’s 2017 “Person of the Year”, Terry Crews as keynote speaker at the 8th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.
In addition to his successful and ongoing acting career, Mr. Crews is an outspoken activist on the topic of masculinity and gender roles having been called “one of the most progressive and thoughtful voices in gender criticism” by Jezebel.
This has been a year of speaking out and speaking up for women and with women across North America. Mr. Crews has been a significant part of the energy as the first man in Hollywood to speak up in support of the #MeToo movement. He is an insightful and thoughtful advocate for gender equality and recognized as a “Silence Breaker.”
Men and boys are important allies and partners in helping end gender-based violence in our communities. Mr. Crews often speaks out on the critical role men play in gender equality and advocates for changes to modern day masculinity and what ‘being a man’ really means. His passion and honesty make him a great choice to speak at the 2018 YWHISPER Gala.
