According to DVAC, the principal is for men to be of worth, and maturity, recognizing their obligations to behave appropriately with others.
“For more than 40 years, women and children have been marching and advocating for safety in homes, schools, and communities,” DVAC’s CEO Nanci Kreidman said. “Men’s voices have been much more silent. We believe that men and women are allies and the best results will be achieved with men and women standing united with one voice against domestic violence.”
