The Nashville Church of Scientology supports the good works of others. Today’s highlight: the YWCA launching a project to engage men to help bring an end to violence against women and girls.
The YWCA is spreading its message of nonviolence against women even further with a new project to encourage men to become involved. According to ywcanashville.org, “The YWCA seeks to promote awareness about domestic violence and works in cooperation with other organizations that serve victims of domestic violence.” Hence, the YWCA’s partnership with A Call to Men, a national violence prevention organization providing training and education for men, boys and communities.
The two organizations are joining together to host an event in early August with speakers including the Nashville Mayor and Chief of Police.
The Engaging Men project is being funded by a grant from the Verizon Foundation, which closely aligns with Verizon's strategy to engage and empower men to speak up and be part of the solution to end the violence. The Verizon Foundation has even listed steps on its website for men to follow when they become aware of violent behavior. These steps can be seen at verizonfoundation.com/yourvoicecounts.
The YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee along with A Call to Men will host an event for Engaging Men on August 7, 2013 at 7:30am at the Belmont Curb Event Center. For more information or to register for the event, visit ywcanashville.com.
