Men As Peacemakers believes that preventing violence is 100% possible.
Our innovative work is committed to addressing the root causes of violence against women, children, and all people. Our vision is to create a new normal of equity and safety, so that all people--regardless of race, age, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation or class--can achieve their full potential.
For 25 years, Men As Peacemakers has been engaging individuals and communities in Minnesota and beyond, by mobilizing existing community resources and developing primary prevention and restorative strategies proven to significantly reduce and repair the harm caused by men.
Today, our unique programming directly serves over 1,000 children & adults, and engages an additional 40,000 people annually in presentations, online trainings, and workshops.
