What OMAV Does
Networking and Collective ActionOMAV maintains a directory of organizations and groups working to engage men in the effective prevention of and response to gendered violence throughout Oregon, facilitates networking and discussion through our email listserv, and organizes collective action and outreach efforts (such as our Cultivate Healthy Masculinity and Domestic Violence Awareness Month 10-10-10 campaigns).
Engaging Men WebinarsOur webinars seek to connect experienced practitioners and researchers in sexual violence prevention and men’s engagement with all those conducting violence prevention and education work in various communities, with the goal of sparking dialogue, recognizing the intersections within our work, and increasing the effectiveness of all community-based efforts.
