Men Can is a campaign to empower more men to speak out against Intimate Partner Violence in Philadelphia.
The Men Can rally is a place to celebrate all of the work to prevent Intimate Partner Violence that has happened in Philly in the past year, and to especially recognize the efforts of one man who has played a powerful role in making our homes, neighborhoods and communities safer. This year that man will be Dr. Mario Cruz of Philadelphia FIGHT.
Come to the rally for the free food, entertainment, inspiring stories and speeches, and to learn how to get plugged into helping to prevent Intimate Partner Violence and challenge toxic masculinity. #MenCan2017
