20th Annual Men’s March Against Violence

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Did you know that one in every four American women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? Domestic violence is estimated to represent the leading cause of injury among women between the ages of 15 to 44—more than car accidents, muggings, and cancer deaths combined.

In an effort to educate communities about bringing an end to domestic violence and to recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month, seven local organizations will once again join together to present the 20th Annual Men's March Against Violence on Thursday, October 23.

Taking a stand against domestic violence, this annual event features a short march and rally in support of non-violence. While men are asked to march, the entire community is welcome to march alongside them. All are encouraged to attend the Rally, featuring several motivational speakers, which immediately follows the march. The event marks an important opportunity for the community to speak out with one voice.
