Men’s March against Violence
Was a HUGE success! Here’s a Hawaii News Now article about it:
The statistics are alarming, but Hawaii residents are taking a stand against a disturbing trend.
One out of every four women will be a victim of domestic violence.
On average, three women are killed each day across the country, at the hands of a current or former romantic partner.
On Thursday, Hawaii took a stand against that disturbing trend.
Thursday’s march in downtown Honolulu drew a number of non-profit groups, as well as the City, and the Honolulu Police Department, in observing October as Domestic Violence Awareness month. This year, the spotlight has shifted, not on the victim or the offender, but rather on the bystander, signifying that violence is everyone’s business. It’s becoming widely known that men are victims as well.
“It is you, you young men with your ties on sitting here wondering when I’m going to be pau, it is you that is going to make the change in the society that we need”, said Schatz.
