Thank you to the over 100 guests who joined us on October 18 to Man Up! It was a great success and we send a special thank you to Steve Smith, Sr. of the Baltimore Ravens and the many area collegiate coaches who joined us as well!
Why Man Up?
In situations of intimate partner violence, the reaction in our society has always been, ‘Why doesn’t she just leave?’ We, as a community must shift the paradigm to change that question to: ‘Why does HE think it is ok to abuse her?’ It’s time for men to speak up, to take responsibility for their behavior, and to hold each other to having partner relationships that are healthy. It’s time to ‘Man Up!’
Thank you to the many special guests who joined us on October 18!
