Creating a
Safer World

 

“Freedom is not a state; it is an act. It is not some enchanted garden perched high on a distant
plateau where we can finally sit down and rest. Freedom is the continuous action we all must take,
and each generation must do its part to create an even more fair, more just society.”

– U.S. Congressman John Lewis, Civil Rights Hero and First Board Chair of Men Stopping Violence

Nothing about addressing the issue of violence against women and girls should be passive. This is why we teach, we train, we write. This is why our work revolves around the voices and experiences of women. In the movement to end violence against women, Men Stopping Violence is keenly aware that we must address the intersections of gender and race, while also shining a light on violent systems that continue to traumatize the Black community. In disrupting the structures that uphold inequities, MSV stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and others who embrace the immortal words of Fannie Lou Hamer, – “Nobody’s free until everybody’s free.” To that end, we are emphatic about creating safer communities for women, girls, and communities of color. We are committed to being an active voice in the cause of justice, as we have been for the past 38 years.

If you or someone you know is engaging in abusive behavior, experienced staff members are available to help. Please call us at 404-270-9894

The Huddle

 

Now, more than ever, we need to take care of ourselves, so we can take care of the others in our lives. One way we can do this is to be in community with each other as we learn about, respond to, and process racial and social injustices. Today, the coronavirus outbreak is disrupting so many of the ways we get relief – sports, going to work, hanging out with the guys, etc.

Join us as we build community and seek justice together on our next Huddle.
