About the Campaign
The Bay Area Women’s Center is committed to providing an opportunity for men to be involved in our mission to end domestic violence and sexual assault. There are many reasons why men are an important part of the solution: Men know survivors, men have a voice, and men are survivors too. Join us in the Bay Area Women’s Center Men’s Campaign.
Many of the norms and expectations that exist in our society perpetuate violence against intimate partners. Men are often raised and encouraged to be powerful, show aggression, control situations, and suppress emotions. These expectations are damaging and hinder our progress toward creating a world where domestic and sexual violence no longer exist.
Through the BAWC Men’s Campaign, you can lend your voice to be part of the solution. To join, download the flyer below or click the "Donate Now" button.
