For more than 20 years, Men For Change has been bringing our community together, raising awareness and funds to provide life-saving services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Men For Change offers a space where fathers, sons, brothers and their families can participate in activities throughout the year aimed at ending domestic and sexual violence.

As a Man For Change, I PLEDGE:

To not participate in relationship violence and not to tolerate it in other men.
To take a leadership role in discouraging other men from abusing their partners.
To not remain a silent bystander, as silence condones abuse.
To challenge men who use sexist language and make degrading jokes or comments about women.
To examine my own attitudes and beliefs about violence, power, control, and entitlement.
To talk with boys and young men about healthy and equitable attitudes and relationships.
To be the husband, father, brother, co-worker, teammate, or friend who says:

I will not silently stand by and allow it to continue.

New year, new resolutions ... why not shake up that list in 2021? You can resolve to take a stand against domestic and sexual violence in the Charlotte community by joining Men For Change. Your gift provides support for survivors and your commitment helps change attitudes and beliefs that contribute to the cycle of violence. As a member of Men For Change, you will receive exclusive invitations to events and other opportunities supporting Safe Alliance.
