ENGAGING MEN AND BOYS

M.jpg

The Calgary Domestic Violence Collective (CDVC) has set engaging men and boys as an area of focus for 2016-2018.

The goal behind this is to identify areas where men can become more involved with the issues of domestic and sexual violence. Domestic violence is not just a woman’s’ issue and men need to be part of the solution if we are going to end it.  

By focusing on ways to better engage the current and future generation of men, we hope to help them use their position within the community to affect change within our culture and become strong allies in reducing incidents of these crimes. We can also help promote healthy views on masculinity and gender equality. 

There is a working group dedicated to this task and the other working groups are expected to consider this a priority, and finds ways to contribute to this area of focus through their work.
