Walking Into A New Life’s Men Against Domestic Violence component recently hosted the 4th Annual Male Advocacy Brunch and Awards Celebration. We would like to thank the Church Health Center, United Healthcare, JP Connections, District Attorney Amy Weirich, Gwendolyn Turner, Bryan Carson, Commissioner Kevin Reed, Vernetta Eddleman and the countless number of people who supported this event in some way. We are so honored to see men come forward and share their time and talents in the areas of domestic violence and sexual assault.
As always, we honored a stellar group of men, addressed the need for more male involvement and acknowledgment of men as victims/survivors, statistics and tangible resource materials. We also had giveaways, a tasty brunch buffet and announced a few initiatives for the weeks and months ahead, with more information to come via the website and social media. Be sure to check back, as we will be featuring more information about each recipient.
