About US

The Engaging Men to End Gender-Based Violence: Resource & Strategy Center was created as a partnership between the US Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), Futures Without Violence (FUTURES), Caminar Latino, and Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, Inc. in 2022.

With a commitment to approaches and programs that support the engagement of men as allies & partners in efforts to end violence, these organizations identified the need to create a consolidated, easily-navigable hub to learn and share programs and best practices within the field. Resources and guidance were compiled from notable organizations that focus on masculinity and men’s engagement, research from academia, and decades of programmatic expertise.

The result is this website which provides guidance and tools for four key areas involved in Engaging Men initiatives: Planning, Programming, Training, and Evaluation. We encourage you to identify, adopt, and adapt the principles, programs, and models detailed on this website to best connect and be relevant within your community.
