Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance and Training Resource Center (TC-TAT) and co-presenter Men Stopping Violence (MSV) will explore the pressing question of: What will stop men from using male vi olence against women? On one hand, preventing male violence against women requires men to become more accountable to the people in their lives around their use of violence, participation in patriarchy, and how they socialize each other. Prevention also involves analyzing and transforming the role of our communities, institutions, and organizations to no longer uphold violence against women.
This webinar will introduce MSV’s Community Accountability Model for intervention and prevention of male violence against women. Based on 30 years of practice, and an ever evolving vision for what will transform our communities into places safe for ALL women and girls, the Community Accountability Model can be used to assess current programmatic efforts, identify community allies, and to strengthen both prevention and intervention efforts with men. This is funded by the California Emergency Manageme nt Agency
