THE TE INVITO TOOLKIT

Welcome to the Engaging Men and Boys Toolkit. This toolkit is a collection of resources and materials for individuals and organizations to increase awareness and engage Latino men and boys in preventing domestic violence. Here you will find information about programs that have been documented to work effectively, key cultural considerations, a customizable PSA campaign that organizations can use in their local area, and suggestions for how individuals can become more involved in working to end domestic violence. 

 

This toolkit will be updated as additional resources are created and identified. If you know of an effective or innovative, culturally relevant approach to engaging Latino men and boys in prevention efforts, please let us know through the Share Your Work section. 

 

This project was generously supported by the Verizon, who through Hopeline by Verizon puts technology and our nation’s most reliable and largest wireless network to work in communities by turning unused wireless phones into support for victims of domestic violence, and helps protect the environment by disposing of wireless phones in an environmentally sound way. Check out how you can support these efforts in the What to do section.
