Man Up is a global campaign, launched in September of 2009, to activate
youth to stop violence against women and girls. Our call to action
challenges each of us to “man up” and declare that violence against
women and girls must end.
In order to break the cycle of trauma
and misinformation unabated violence against women and girls bestows on
individuals, families, communities and societies around the world, Man
Up Campaign was created to give young people a voice in developing
models of change that truly address this issue.
universal platforms of sport, music, technology and the arts, Man Up
Campaign is partnering with young men and women around the world by
providing innovative training, resources and support to youth informed
initiatives. This partnership works to build a network of young
advocates and defenders, linking their efforts to those of community
based and mainstream organizations, entertainment and sports
communities, non-profits and corporations towards our common cause.
This summer, Man Up will bring together a prestigious team of
delegates, along with artists, athletes and activists to launch a
five-year campaign at an inaugural Young Leaders Summit in Johannesburg,
South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
In 2014 this
same group of Man Up Delegates will gather again at World Cup 2014 in
Brazil to share their experiences, build community, and further develop
methodologies to strengthen their efforts.
Am proud to be part of this. For more information on how you can get involved follow: http://manupcampaign.org/about/56/130-the-campaign
