Creating a Safer World


For Women & Girls

Nothing about addressing the issue of gender-based violence should be passive. This is why we teach, we train, we write. This is why our work revolves around the voices and experiences that women have. We are emphatic about creating safer communities for women and girls. We are committed to being an active voice in this cause, as we have been for the past 37 years.

About Men Stopping Violence

Men Stopping Violence is a 37- year-old organization that focuses on ending gender-based violence by educating and organizing men in a call to action to be a part of the solution. Through our partnership with men, we are building knowledge on the issue, continuously building an understanding of the subject as it continues to evolve, lead critical societal conversations and create change agents of the participants in our program.

Join Our Free “Men, How Are We Coping?” Check-Ins.

At Men Stopping Violence, we know that men often cope with stress by bottling it up, seeking escapes, or using aggression towards loved ones. Today, the coronavirus outbreak is disrupting so many of the ways we get relief – sports, going to work, hanging out with the guys, etc. Now, more than ever, we need to take care of ourselves, so we can take care of the others in our lives.

What are some tools we can use to stay grounded and healthy?
