Men – as fathers, brothers, coaches, teachers, uncles and mentors – are in a unique position to prevent domestic violence through action and conversation. The Futures Without Violence has refined its public education strategy to focus on men and boys as a critical part of the national movement to end violence against women and girls. Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) is the result of this shift – helping stop violence before it starts. The campaign’s core goal is to inspire men to teach boys to respect women and that violence never equals strength. The CBIM campaign includes multi-lingual and multi-cultural poster versions. This version was developed specifically for American Indian and Alaska Native communities by a committee of leaders working in Native communities and on violence prevention and is co-sponsored by Mending the Sacred Hoop Technical Assistance Project.
The 11” x 17” poster may be used in any community or health setting frequented by men and boys including Tribal offices, schools, gyms, batter’s intervention programs, health care facilities and visitation centers.
