The Colorado Men Against Domestic Violence Pledge1
I proudly pledge my support to become part of the solution to domestic violence. By signing this declaration I am taking a public stand to confront and end domestic violence.
I will participate in creating a community that no longer tolerates domestic violence. To do so, I pledge to further my knowledge and understanding of domestic violence and the responses it requires from the community. I make a commitment that I will never use or justify the use of emotional, sexual, physical, or economic abuse against an intimate partner.
By example and by leadership, I will teach that strength and manhood are not defined by violence or domination. I will speak out even when it is more comfortable to be silent. I will join with other men, across our differences, to speak with one voice to say "no more."
It is time for men to stand against domestic violence. These acts destroy the fabric of our communities. We honor the leadership of the many women that have fought tirelessly on this issue and we join them now in solidarity, firmly committed to equality.
