Drew Wing, Executive Director of Boys to Men, was invited to Washington, DC, in May to discuss the importance of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), a federal law that has provided funds for the investigation and prosecution of violent crimes against women since 1994, and which was up for re-authorization in the House of Representatives. Congressional staffers packed a House of Representatives hearing room to learn more about programs currently engaging men and boys in the work of ending violence against women.
Drew spoke about Boys to Men and the successful work this organization is doing as a grantee of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Engaging Men Program. He was joined by Dawn Dalton from the Chicago Battered Women’s Network and Neil Irwin, executive director of Men Can Stop Rape. The panel was moderated by Casey Corcoran and was organized by Futures Without Violence.
