Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Women’s Center in Marquette has kicked off it’s annual 100 Good Men fundraising campaign.
Women’s Center Executive Director Beth Casady and Board Member John Centko joined the Sunny Morning Show this week to talk about the effort and encourage men to get involved.
Casady said men have a crucial role to play in the movement to end violence against women and children, as well as other men, and they have an opportunity with this campaign to increase awareness of and advocating for violence prevention at the community level.
Centko said through this campaign, men are becoming part of the solution in ending what has become one of the most significant social issues of our time, and that local men are standing with the thousands of other men across the country who say “Enough already!”
How can a man participate? It is easy!
You can go onto the Women’s Center website for a donation form or to donate directly online.
Casady said each man that donates $100 or more will be shared with the community on the Women’s Center website, Facebook and Instagram page, and in the local media, unless they choose not to.
The donations help support the services that the Women’s Center provides such as counseling, legal advocacy, and operating a 24/7/365 emergency shelter for where the abused can find safe shelter as they recover from the trauma of domestic and sexual violence.
