Bystanders No More

On February 24, 2014, Sanctuary for Families, in collaboration with A CALL TO MEN, brought together policy makers, activists, and thought leaders for a panel discussion exploring men and boys’ stake in the movement to end gender violence.

Panelists explored how gender violence affects boys and men, how societal influences promote and perpetuate gender violence, and how men can become leaders in this movement.

We were thrilled that nearly 450 supporters and allies attended this special event.  Couldn't attend, but want to learn more? Click through the links below.
