Last week I had the pleasure of attending White Ribbon Day at the State House. The event is designed to bring men together so we would speak in a unified voice while pledging to be part of the solution in ending violence against women. The afternoon was thought-provoking, moving, and motivating. The diversity of people was incredible and included providers of all types, politicians, athletes, students, advocates, and concerned men from all walks of life. As powerful as the event itself was, what struck afterwards was the need to keep the desire of all of the participants burning beyond this important day as far as creating real change.
Thus, in the spirit of igniting action and being part of the ongoing effort toward ending domestic abuse, let’s think about how to hold abusers accountable. I have started a list of what we can all do to help.
