Men Can Stop Violence

The SAFE Place Men’s Program mobilizes male students to prevent men's violence against women and other men. We build young men's capacity to challenge harmful aspects of traditional masculinity, to value alternative visions of male strength, and to embrace their vital role as allies with women and girls in fostering healthy relationships and gender equity.  The SAFE Place Men’s Program sees men as partners in solving the problem of sexual violence. Violence against women is not just a women's issue, but rather a community issue.

We provide presentations to campus groups such as: fraternities & sororities, athletic teams, students in the residence halls, and international students.  We have informational campaigns and events to bring awarenss to sexual violence and promote healthy relationships.

We acknowledge that men have a special role in sexual violence prevention. We believe men can act as allies to intervene in situations where other men are at-risk of committing sexual violence and men can create cultures where sex is always consensual and relationships are non-violent.

If you are a man who is concerned with the issue of sexual violence and would like to be part of The SAFE Place Men's Program or you would like more information contact Ismael de Guzman at 415-338-2208.
