The Oregon Men Against Violence Initiative partnered with Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Service, the Mid-Valley Men Against Violence, and the Statesman Journal to educate men in the Salem community on ways that we can be involved in the prevention of gendered violence. On October 10, 2010 (10-10-10) ten men from Salem and its surrounding communities wrote an editorial for the Statesman Journal reflecting on their own experiences working to create a world free from gendered violence. Check out “Ten Things Men Can Do” flyer here and see the 10-10-10 editorial here. Thank you to the Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Service staff and the Mid-Valley Men Against Violence for making this possible!
