DALLAS MEN ARE TAKING A STAND
Join us and take the pledge.
A man never hits a woman.
A man speaks out against domestic abuse.
A man teaches his daughter she should never tolerate abuse. Not once.
A man teaches his sons to respect women.
When domestic violence is discussed, the focus is normally on the female victim’s ability to cope mentally & physically, and ways to find help to resolve the situation. What has been missing is a discussion about manhood. What constitutes a man? Is it age? Is “man” a title that should be earned? And what happened to a man’s personal accountability for his behavior? Join us as we expose the problem and search for answers.
