VAWA Briefing: Engaging Men in Violence Prevention
Too often men are excluded from discussions and programs aimed at ending violence against women, when the reality is they often hold the keys to stopping such violence. Targeted, evidence-based programs can teach young men how to express themselves without violence and how to intervene when they observe other men using abusive actions.
As we seek to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA); landmark legislation that provides vital resources to prevent and address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking; we must ensure programs integrating men are incorporated and fully funded.
