Hunterdon County BWNICE Chapter’s seventh annual Luncheon & Fashion Show, this summer, was not only a wonderful event for business woman of Hunterdon County to meet, network and show off thier red fashion. It was also an event that raised public awareness and $7,000 to support the immediate needs of adults and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

Thank you BWNICE for your compassion and generosity toward our Hunterdon County community, by helping SAFE in the fight to end domestic abuse and sexual assault once and for all!

NJCEDV Men of Strength Campaign

Why NJ Men of Strength?

We often hear of the number of men who perpetrate domestic violence, but there are many more who are concerned about this epidemic, and who want to do something to help. In fact, according to Futures Without Violence:
• 88% of men believe that society should do more to promote respect for women and girls;
• 57% of men believe that they personally can make a difference in preventing domestic violence and sexual assault; and
• 73% of men think they can make a difference in promoting healthy, respectful, non-violent relationships among young people.

Engaging men and boys as allies in the work to end violence against women and girls is an important part of reducing gender-based violence in our communities. Through education and community organizing efforts, men and boys can gain more knowledge and skills in preventing violence and promoting healthy, supportive relationships.
