Men’s Leadership Breakfast: Engaging Men to Talk About Violence Against Women
September 4, 2014 | Grand Hyatt, Atlanta
Though domestic violence is often considered a “women’s issue,” PADV believes that we cannot evolve into a domestic violence-free society without the support of men. This belief served as inspiration for our first Men’s Leadership Breakfast, presented by Verizon Wireless. At this event, non-violent men were encouraged to become a part of the solution for ending domestic violence by promoting healthy relationships. To view pictures from this event, click here.
