Men working to end domestic violence
"I pledge to MODEL, in all areas, the powerful role men can take in breaking the cycle of violence..." This is one of the statements uttered by hundreds of men as they take the "Domestic Peace Pledge" and become part of 100 Men Take a Stand.
At conferences and gatherings around the country, the 100 Men staff add interested individuals to the Domestic Peace Action Postcard list. The postcards (see example, HERE ) motivate people to act from an African-American perspective, including how the legacy of slavery reverberates in lives today and encouraging men to reject the violent practices and stereotypes handed down through generations. Take the Domestic Peace Pledge, receive the Domestic Peace Action Postcard, and learn more about 100 Men, here.
