Interrupting Violence on Campuses: Engaging Men as Allies

Interrupting Violence on Campuses: Engaging Men As Allies
On-Demand Webinar

Recorded June 17, 2015

Violence Prevention Educator, Inclusion Strategist and Dialogue Facilitator Tremayne Robertson addressed a vital, but often overlooked, aspect of violence prevention on campus: the role of men as allies against sexual violence. His presentation covered how higher education leaders and student advocates can help create and nurture a positive campus culture by involving men and women in the conversation.

Mr. Robertson emphasized the importance of Men Against Violence (MAV) organizations on campuses. These groups help to connect "males who seek to promote healthy masculinity through dialogue, leadership, and action." A well-designed, active MAV works to "eradicate power-based violence that includes sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking."
