OUR VISION

IT STARTS HERE AND YOU CAN CHANGE IT ALL

Men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.

 

We work to examine the root causes of gender-based violence and create a cultural shift that helps bring us to a future without violence.

 

Our vision is for a masculinity that embodies the best qualities of being human. We believe that men are part of the solution and part of a future that is safe and equitable for all people.

Through education, awareness-raising, outreach, technical assistance, capacity building, partnerships and creative campaigns, our goal is to create tools, strategies and models that challenge negative, outdated concepts of manhood and inspire men to understand and embrace the incredible potential they have to be a part of positive change.

WHY PURPLE?

In other parts of Canada, men wear white ribbons to express solidarity with women in the important work of prevention of violence against women. In the long history of effective work, Island women have done in this area, they have worn purple ribbons. So, Island men wear purple ribbons in support of Island women in the prevention of violence against Island women. 

A MAN'S INFLUENCE

Men can prevent violence against women by not personally engaging in violence, by intervening against the violence of other men, and by addressing the root causes of violence.
