Promoting a clear mission for all men: end violence against women.
To empower men to end all forms of violence against women by educating ourselves and the community, raising awareness, and creating social change.
Men Against Violence Against Women® is a volunteer-based organization founded and run by men who want to put an end to gender-based violence and sexism. Since 2000, as an official auxiliary organization of Hubbard House, we have dedicated ourselves to speaking up and supporting agencies and community organizations who align with our mission.
Our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, and other loved ones deserve safety and a life without violence. If you are one of the good guys, if you want to do something about domestic violence but are frustrated and don’t know where to begin, that is where MAVAW comes in. We can’t make changes alone, but together, we can start.
MAVAW® needs your help. We need men who are willing to be brave, challenge societal norms, and help us address gender-based violence and sexism.
There are a number of ways to participate:
To join us in this important work, we invite you to take the pledge:
I agree to remain violence-free in all my relationships.
I agree never to commit, condone, or remain silent about domestic violence.
I pledge to stand with other men in our community to work towards eradicating domestic violence in all its forms by educating myself and the community, raising awareness, and creating social change.
