Engaging Males in Stopping Violence Against Women: Regional Town Halls

Vice President Joe Biden’s commitment to ending violence against women has been unwavering. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that he authored has reshaped the way the United States responds to domestic violence and sexual assault by enhancing law enforcement practices, improving the criminal justice system, and creating a network of services for victims.

In response to the Vice President’s call to action and youth initiative, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development are collaborating to hold ten regional town hall events throughout the country during the last week of October 2011 on the topic of Engaging Men in Ending Violence Against Women.

As Vice President Biden reminded us on the 17th Anniversary of the passage of the VAWA, “We can fight violence again women. But it can’t happen without all of you speaking up and acting; it can’t end until we make it completely clear that sexual assault and violence against women cannot, will not be tolerated anywhere, anytime for any reason, period.”
