Domestic Violence Prevention event engages young men to stop the violence against women | Events
On January 16, Alabama State University is partnering with One Place Family Justice Center to host what will be the beginning of a local movement to engage young men in the prevention of domestic and sexual violence against women and girls.
The “A Call to Men” inaugural event will take place on the Alabama State University Campus from 6 - 8 p.m. in the auditorium of the John L. Buskey Health Science Center. The event will feature a presentation by Ted Bunch, co-founder and co-director of “A Call to Men,” followed by a panel and discussion regarding men’s involvement in the prevention of domestic violence against women and girls.
Nationally, “A Call to Men” invites men to become part of the solution to the crisis of domestic and sexual violence against women and girls by creating a better world for our daughters, sons, sisters, and mothers. The call is to good men – well-meaning men – men who care about the women and girls in their lives.
This event is part of a national initiative to increase the participation of men as part of the solution to combat domestic and dating violence against women and girls in communities like Montgomery. ASU students and student-athletes will take part in this event!
