WHO WE ARE

At the Man Up Against Violence initiative, we challenge mindsets and behaviors with regard to the social construction of masculinity and its relationship with violence. We work together to bring light to the causes of all types of violence related to gender, race, socio-economic status, ability level and beyond.

Through education, training, partnerships and awareness, the Man Up Against Violence initiative strives to embrace positive ideals of masculinity, and inspire men to accept their role as advocates in the movement to prevent violence in our communities.

Our Vision.

Man Up Against Violence will raise awareness around healthy masculinity and provide opportunities for education with a goal of increasing involvement of men in the cause. With the support of male advocates, Man Up Against Violence will continue to challenge the damaging effects of socialized hypermasculinity ergo reducing violence in our communities.
