A CALL TO MEN
A CALL TO MEN is a leading national violence prevention organization providing training and education for men, boys and communities. Our aim is to shift social norms that negatively impact our culture and promote a more healthy and respectful definition of manhood.
A CALL TO MEN recognizes that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women are rooted in the ways women and girls have been traditionally viewed and treated in our society. We provide men and boys with tools, practical methods and strategies to understand this connection and how to positively address these social issues. We partner with schools, universities, corporations, government, social service agencies and communities to end all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls.
A CALL TO MEN invites men to join us and become the solution by creating a better world for our daughters, our sons, our sisters, our mothers and ultimately ourselves!
