Today is Giving Tuesday, a Global Day of Giving

Your participation in #GivingTuesday2015 will help promote healthy, respectful manhood and prevent violence against women and girls. 

A CALL TO MEN educates men all over the world on healthy, respectful manhood.  Embracing and promoting a healthy, respectful manhood prevents violence against women, sexual assault and harassment, bullying and many other social ills. 

Research by the World Health Organization shows that men and boys who adhere to rigid, traditional notions of gender roles and masculinity are more likely to report having used violence against a partner.  If men embrace a healthy, respectful manhood, many of our social ills – from domestic violence and sexual assault to bullying and discrimination – would drastically decrease. 

Your donation helps fund this life-changing work. 

In honor of Giving Tuesday, A CALL TO MEN’s Board of Directors will match donations up to $XXX.  Gifts of $250 or more receive an A CALL TO MEN t-shirt. 

Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours and activities that bring about real change in communities.

Promote Healthy, Respectful Manhood and Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls

Your participation in #GivingTuesday2015 will help promote a healthy, respectful manhood and prevent violence against women and girls.  Donate to A CALL TO MEN and help fund our National Training Institutes, advanced training on engaging men and boys in domestic violence and sexual assault prevention, and educating them on healthy, respectful manhood.   

Recent attendee Nora Reissig, Director, Family Services Department, New York Housing Authority said: “The only word I can use to describe the experience of these last two days at the A CALL TO MEN Institute is ‘transformative.’ For real change to happen, we must first start within ourselves.  The group exercises and discussions enabled me to challenge my own beliefs in order to become more effective in working with communities of color to end all forms of violence against women.   I am grateful for the opportunity to come together in an open and honest forum with others to challenge social norms that continue to oppress women and provide a privileged status to some while marginalizing many."
