¡Hasta Aqui No Mas! is a multimedia educational campaign that aims to engage Latin@s in a dialogue about sexual violence. Two public service announcements (PSAs) videos were created to promote the initiative, which feature Latin-American men and women confronting sexual violence. The PSAs promote attitudes and behaviors that empower men and boys to play an active role in ending sexual violence and to support messages of consent, equity and accountability. (You can read more about the project here.)

“This is not a program, it is an approach, it is a commitment to a way of life.” —Jerry Tello
- Based in a profound understanding and respect of the Latin@ culture, National Compadres Network aims to teach Latino men about their positive values, beliefs, traditions, and history by connecting them with “Un Hombre Noble”.
- The uniqueness of the NCN approach lies in the use of concepts such as kinship (Compadrazgo), extended family system, fear, sadness, dignity, respect, and learning through our culture to heal from the effects of the trauma (el Susto) of discrimination, violence, and racism.
- With more than 25 years of experience, NCN offers a variety of comprehensive approaches for addressing issues like family violence, gang violence, teen fatherhood, teen pregnancy prevention, fatherhood, parenting, and Latino Rites of Passage for Young Men.
- In addition, NCN offers training, technical assistance, consultation, guides, and assistance for the development of círculos and for connecting communities within the network.

“When you do something well, you should share with the world.” —Promundo
- Program H aims to transform social norms, attitudes and beliefs that are harmful for men’s health and to promote healthy forms of masculinity.
- Designed as a group education curriculum to engage young men from urban or rural backgrounds, Program H supports candid dialogue and critical reflection about gender equality, caregiving, sexual and reproductive health, women’s rights, domestic violence, and violence against other men.
- Divided into five modules with approximately 70 activities and a no-words video called Once Upon a Boy, Program H is easily adapted to the demands of the local community through the use of a community assessment and technical assistance provided by Promundo.org.br and their regional partners.
- Designed for same-sex groups, Program H can be facilitated by men who serve as role models for the youth and who come from the same community. The program is also designed to engage young men as activists and community mobilizers at the school or community level.
- All materials including manuals, evaluation reports, and videos are free and available at the organization website.
- The results of eight quasi-experimental studies on Program H in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Balkan found positive evidence of changes among program participants toward more gender-equitable attitudes and behavior.

“I want to emphasize that this program was created for Migrant Latino men who have to continually move due to their work.” —Adrian Velasquez
- Hombres Unidos was created for Spanish-speaking Latino men who are migrant workers. Its goal is to respond to the conditions and difficulties these men face on a daily basis.
- Influenced by Paulo Freire’s popular education model, the program is facilitated by two men who conduct an open and candid discussion about domestic violence, sexual abuse, and the ways participants can engage in prevention.
- Hombres Unidos offers a series of five, two-hour workshop sessions, designed around core protective cultural factors such as collectivism, personalism and familism.
- The program’s principal objective is to change participants’ attitudes, knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors with the intention of engaging them in sexual violence and abuse prevention within their communities.
- The evaluation, which included 309 participants, shows that Hombres Unidos offers promising results in changed attitudes, behavior, and the willingness to intervene to prevent DV among Latino migrant men.

The Men’s Story Project (MSP) promotes healthy masculinity and prevention of gender violence. The program consists of the development of public presentations in which men analyze social norms around masculinity and gender relations through candid stories about their life experiences. The stories cover issues such as paternity, sexuality, substance abuse, and experiences of perpetrating, witnessing, surviving, and/or intervening in diverse forms of violence. Presenters can include opinion leaders such as celebrities or activists as well as men who’ve never spoken publically.
- In each MSP production, 5–15 men share their personal stories with the public in an unusually candid manner. The stories celebrate men’s humanity and point out the damage caused by stereotyped and unhealthy masculinity. Multiple media can be used, including narrated history, poetry, music, dance, and monologues. However, artistic experience and presentation-styles are not required. Each session is followed by a public discussion.
- MSP supports groups in developing anecdotes and presentation activities, as well as in filming these events to create culturally-specific educational documentaries. The presentation focus can vary depending on the interests of the organization; for example, it can focus specifically on stories relevant to gender violence prevention. Documentaries can accompany these live events, along with educator’s manuals, discussions of community events, media coverage, and advocacy.
- MSP’s website and YouTube channel include the work of local initiatives, which can be regular functions in a non-profit organization, touring groups, or incorporated into the wide range of educational men’s programming.
- Preliminary results of a qualitative study from the U of California–San Francisco indicate that live productions are a promising way of stimulating attitude changes and behavior towards gender norms and healthier social relationships.
- MSP is implemented with the support of a 40-page guide for facilitators, a license and the technical support (Spanish and English) of the organization at www.mensstoryproject.org.
