men as allies

The Men As Allies Program engages men as leaders and role models in preventing domestic and sexual violence through the Call to Action Team and provides youth violence prevention programs to schools and community organizations, including Coaching Boys into Men and LIVERESPECT: Coaching Healthy and Respectful Manhood.

Join the Call To Action Team!


The role of this men’s team is to promote men’s leadership in the lives of men in Ottawa County and to encourage men and boys to contribute positively to healthy relationships and a safe community.

Call To Action Team Mission

Our mission is to engage men as role models and leaders in ending sexual and domestic violence. We do this by reframing manhood to:

1) Embrace healthy and respectful behavior.
2) Prevent interpersonal violence and discrimination.
3) Help strengthen the community of West Michigan.

CALL TO ACTION

Our Call to Action Team has created a resource to engage men as role models and leaders in ending domestic and sexual violence.

RESILIENT

We are persistent in the face of challenge while being fully committed to this work.

ACCOUNTABLE

We hold one another accountable for our actions while as a group we are held accountable by the voices of women.

Equitable

We strive to create a judgement free space where our uniqueness is celebrated and affirmed.

Vulnerable

We elevate one’s true self by having the courage to step into a place of genuine authenticity.

Active Listening

We strive to be fully present in the moment and highlight counter stories that destigmatize vulnerability and connection.

Empathetic

We respect one another while inviting people into conversations with a compassionate and understanding heart.

The Lakeshore Healthy Manhood Collective is a coordinated community response committee of the Lakeshore Alliance Against Domestic and Sexual Violence facilitated by the Call to Action Team. Members include community leaders who educate, empower, and influence men and boys to pursue and model authentic, respectful and healthy manhood.
