The all-suite hotel is in downtown Detroit, and we have a nightly rate of $129 per room, with discounted valet parking for both hotel guests and day visitors. We have our own page on the hotel website so you can book your room in our block.

Rooms can sleep as many as six (requires sharing beds). If you’d like to find some roommates, try posting on the event page on Facebook or indicate that you’d like to when you register. We’ll be happy to coordinate making connections, but we can’t make room assignments.



HAVEN, in partnership with the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS), will hold a conference focused on violence against women as a social justice issue, and its intersection with other social justice issues.



Joined by the many advocates, activists, academics, and allies working to end domestic violence, this critical conference aimed at providing the most effective analysis especially aimed at engaging men to end violence against women. At each NOMAS conference, we work to address domestic (and other forms of) violence through specialized workshops and discussion sessions, plenary sessions, pre-conference institutes, and other organized events aimed at ending violence against women. Our conference themes, workshops, presenters and events are structured to support individuals, activists, service providers, allied professionals, and interessted others, with the information they most need to guide, challenge and improve their work.

The National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS) is an activist organization of men and women supporting positive changes for men. At NOMAS' Men and Masculinity conferences, we evaluate and examine diverse aspects in gender identity, gender roles, the construction of masculinity, and the experiences of men's lives, specifically as related to the role of men as allies to the women's and sexual assault domestic violence movements.
