Welcome To Own It

Through Own It, we…

invite, engage and equip men to speak out and step up to prevent gender-based violence

The Own It Initiative is the main male engagement effort of The Center for Women and Families.

We recognize that men are also victimized, and that there are countless men who love women and men who have been victimized by seuxal or interpersonal violence. The Center’s mission is wide enough to engage men in all these areas.

 

See how some of the men in our community have stepped up: I Own It PSA
