Vera House Releases “Men. Lead by Example” PSA
We are thrilled to release and distribute “Men. Lead by Example,” a public service announcement focusing on men taking leadership in ending violence towards women. This PSA will help promote Vera House’s Men’s Outreach Program, which was made possible through a $300,000 grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for the Prevention of Violence Against Women. “Men. Lead by Example” was produced locally by Solon Quinn Studios, LLC.
With the release of “Men. Lead by Example,” Vera House hopes to reach a diverse audience of men who are committed to engaging in dialogue and preventive education before violent behaviors occur. Vera House’s Men’s Outreach Program is coordinated by George Kilpatrick, who stepped into the role in October 2012.
“Throughout the community we have seen men impacted by simply being willing to examine their own long held beliefs about healthy relationships and healthy masculinity,” said Kilpatrick. “This is an invitation. We meet men where they are without judgment. We are asking all men to look within and ask themselves how they can take a leadership role in ending violence against the women they know and love. So we are asking men to make the commitment today. It’s one of the more important conversations we can have as a community. Are you ready to lead?”
