New Campaign Invites Latino Men to Get the Word Out About Ending Domestic Violence

The National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities has launched a campaign to teach men and boys the important role they play in ending domestic violence.

"Te Invito" ("I invite you") uses the unscripted words of Latino men to speak directly to other Latino men about why they should be involved in ending domestic violence. The campaign toolkit includes posters, videos and other materials that you can download and customize if you want to join the campaign and invite Latino men to participate in your prevention efforts.

To customize and use the video PSAs for your own work, contact products@casadeesperanza.org. A media kit can help you spread the word to the press.
