SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence has rolled out a campaign to get more men involved with the fight against domestic violence.
It’s called the Hear Me Out Campaign Challenge. The mission is to increase engagement with men to promote healthy relationships.
These agencies say the the campaign is also focused on helping men become role models for others and spread the word.
The non-profit organization Schuylkill Women in Crisis is in on the movement, because they recognize that men can also be a victim too.
“We wanted to make sure that they didn’t feel isolated from this work because we too know again that they are affected by domestic violence,” Schuylkill Women in Crisis Communications Director Amy Newton said.
People can also take on the Here Me Out challenge by signing a pledge here.
