Description of the event:
Young men from the Denver Metro area will participate in a panel to share their perspective on what steps can be taken to stop violence against women, how and why they chose to be involved in violence prevention, as well as barriers that keep men from being engaged. They will be joined by community leaders who will “Share the Torch” on how to engage and support other men in preventing dating violence and sexual assault in our homes, communities and on school campuses.
