Pledging to Stop DV

STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!

Thank you for joining our efforts to end the violence. This webpage is dedicated to Mankind's campaign "I AM A MAN" and the men who are making a commitment to help bring about the end of domestic violence.

CALLING ALL MEN TO MAKE THE PLEDGE!

As MEN in our community, we are asking for you to take the pledge to Stop Domestic Violence.

I AM A MAN.

I understand and appreciate the women and children in my life

I AM A MAN.

I will stand up and say Domestic Violence is wrong, while others do nothing

I AM A MAN.

I would never physically abuse a woman or child, or another man, ever, under any circumstances

I pledge to help stop domestic violence because:

  • It ends with me!
  • Everyone deserves peace and equality! -Kyle
  • Always enlighten the youth and adults, lead by example; show people that are receptive to change examples of how to focus not on anything, but how to handle themselves in a potential jeopardous situation, not the one whom you want to control! -Anthony
  • Freedom is for everyone! Peace is my gift. Joy is my reward! -Steve
  • I believe everyone deserves an opportunity to pursue a life in safety, learning, and happiness.
  • It’s much more important to be happy! Physical, verbal, or emotional abuse towards anyone shines poorly on the individual displaying such behavior. Bringing a stop to this personality flaw is not a show of weakness but rather an overwhelming show of good character.
  • It ruins the lives of both the victim and the batterer, as well as impacts the friends and relatives of both parties.
  • Peace and equality is the way…and it’s the right thing to do!
  • It is wrong. This class has taught me to use other tools, instead of anger and shouting, and I feel as if I am a better person for it. -Martin
  • We need a better world, full of peace and harmony.
