A Call to Men and Women to End Violence Against Women
Teaneck, NJ (March 20, 2007) — As part of Women’s History Month, a special presentation by Ted Bunch, co-founder of “A Call to Men and Women to End Violence Against Women,” will be held on FDU’s Metropolitan Campus on Wednesday, March 28.
A Call to Men has gained recognition as one of the leading national men’s organizations addressing men’s violence against women, while maintaining strong connections to women’s organizations already doing this important work.
At FDU, Bunch will focus on becoming part of the solution and exploring how the behavior of abusive men, whether knowingly or unknowingly, is supported by “well meaning men.”
Bunch is recognized both nationally and internationally for his expertise in organizing and educating men in the effort to end violence against women.
He is the director of the largest program for offenders of domestic violence in America. He is a recognized trainer, lecturer and consultant on male accountability. Bunch is an appointed Advisory Board Member to the New York State Integrated Domestic Violence Court, a member of the New York State Governor's Task Force on Commercial Sexual Exploitation and a founding member of the New York City Batterer Task Force. He is co-creator of the New York Model for Batterer Programs.
The March 28 program at FDU is free and open to the public, but registration is required. It will be held from 7-9 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Student Union Building at River Road, Teaneck. The event is sponsored by the Metropolitan Campus’ Relationship Violence Threat Assessment Subcommittee. For further information and to register, call 201 692 6515.
