How Men Can Help

Sexual Violence affects us all in one way or another. As a society we all need to be aware and work towards a culture without sexual violence. Although we are a feminist and women’s based organization we both encourage and welcome the support of males in our community.

Men and boys can get involved in variety of ways:

  • attend public education forums and fundraising events,
  • speak up about violence against women – Don’t be a Silent Bystander.
  • organize your own fundraiser
  • donate the money to a local women’s organization.
  • join an organization like the White Ribbon Campaign and
  • above all else be a positive role model for the young men in your life.
