Domestic violence has long been thought of as a “women’s issue,” but this is not an issue that can be dealt with by women alone. Over the past 10 years Cornerstone has rallied men to show their support for local women and children by participating in the annual Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event. Cornerstone continues to see the value in engaging men in the effort to end violence against women, and for the 10th anniversary of the Walk profiled and enlisted the help of men throughout the community; with the selected men being recognized as M.E.N – Cornerstone’s Men’s Engagement Network aka “M.E.N.“
Each month Cornerstone profiled one, or more, gentlemen, deeming them the “Man,” or “Men of the Month,” recognizing and showcasing their efforts to break the cycle of family violence within Northumberland County. Through initiatives like M.E.N, we engage men as allies and raise awareness of their roles in our work.
Man of the Month
Thank you to our Men of the Month; you have helped us celebrate our 10th anniversary of Walk A Mile by helping start serious conversations within our community. Together we can break the cycle of family violence to create a place where hope can take root and grow.
