Reaching the 99%

Reaching the 99 

Did you know that only 1% of men who batter their intimate partners in the U.S. will enter treatment for domestic violence?! That means that 99% of men who need help to change probably won’t get it. Our research efforts are focused on reaching men who use violence or act abusively and connecting them with innovative interventions or strategies that will stop violence and promote healthy engagement in romantic relationships. Much of the research we do is guided by “community-engaged approaches”, which simply means that we do not thrive by working in isolation, rather our efforts thrive when we nurture equal partnerships with strategically selected community members. 

The infographic below is a visual representation of where we are situating our research efforts over the next 5 years. Join the campaign today! Use the following hashtag to spread the word…
