NYSCADV's "Because We're Dads"

The NYS Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) recognizes the impact fathers and father figures have on promoting women's rights, gender equality, and healthy relationships. Fathers play a significant role in the lives of their children and have the opportunity to influence attitudes and behaviors that support healthy and equitable relationships premised on respect, consent and nonviolence. To highlight the impact that fathers and father figures have on our lives NYSCADV, in collaboration with consultant Rus Funk, who also works with North Atlantic MenEngage Network (NAMEN), announces the launch of Because We’re Dads: Reaching and Mobilizing Fathers to Promote Gender Equality. Over the coming months, we’ll be providing additional tools, resources and opportunities; as well as convening and learning from dads.
