To kick off October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence is sharing their Facebook photo campaign entitled “Colorado Men Making a Difference — How I Show I Care,” developed in partnership with Colorado Men Against Domestic Violence at www.facebook.com/ColoradoMenMakingADifference.
The campaign connects men to opportunities to show their support for healthy, non-violent, non-controlling relationships. (Visit this Facebook page to view how our local men and youth have participated.)
The majority of men are not abusive, want relationships built on respect and have an important role in making a difference. By building visible relationships with men, this campaign will create: Stronger relationships and collaboration outside of traditional anti-domestic violence circles; greater involvement of men in the promotion of healthy relationships; awareness and dialogue to create a shift of social norms that will help achieve social change.
Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program’s Youth Violence Prevention Education Program, a nonprofit agency, promotes the belief that all people have the right to live free from violence by providing support and advocacy services for victims and education for youth and our community.
