Want to be a community champion
on the issue of violence against women?

Help continue the momentum to end violence against women by inviting us to facilitate a MANifest Change Workshop at your school or community organization. Designed for young men aged 13-18, together we learn how to recognize violence against women when we see it, and practice how to respond safely.
