EXCERPT FROM MEN AS PEACEMAKERS CASE STUDY

Men As Peacemakers (MAP) aims to end violence against women and children, with a specific focus on preventing sexual assault, dating violence and domestic violence.

LISTENING

On a daily basis, Men As Peacemakers staff solicit feedback and collaboration with domestic violence survivors, women, Native Americans, people of color, LGBTQ community members and children. In the organization, all voices are welcome, respected and equal.
