A CALL TO MEN works to promote a healthy, respectful manhood and shift attitudes and behaviors that devalue women, girls and other marginalized groups.  Embracing and promoting a healthy, respectful manhood prevents violence against women, sexual assault and harassment, bullying and many other social ills.  This is the Next Generation of Manhood. 

The Next Generation of Manhood will create a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.
