Engaging Men

Why Do Men Need to Care?

1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have experienced sexual violence in their life. More than likely you know someone or of someone who has experienced it. In the U.S., 1 in 4 women (27.4%) and 1 in 9 men (11.0%) have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime and reported an IPV-related impact (e.g., injury, fear, concern for safety, needing services).

This needs to stop and we have a responsibility to say “No More.”

Project Goal

The primary goals of this project are to engage men as leaders and positive role models in the lives of young men age 11-18 and engage men as allies in preventing domestic violence, dating violence, and sexual assault.

How you can become an ally

An ally is someone who has made a personal commitment to fighting oppression and prejudice and whose commitment is reflected in a willingness to:

  • Educate oneself about different identities and experiences.
  • Challenge one’s own discomfort and prejudices.
  • Learn and practice the skills of being an ally.
  • Take action to create interpersonal, societal, and institutional change.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

A variety of opportunities are available to support survivors or to support the agency operations.

How You Can Be an Active Bystander

A bystander is a person who observes a conflict or unacceptable behavior. It might be something serious or minor, one-time or repeated, but the bystander knows that the behavior is destructive or likely to make a bad situation worse. An active bystander takes steps that can make a positive difference.
