What you can do

As a community, we must come together in new ways to end gender-based violence. Here are some ways YOU can help:

Be an advocate

Stand Up and Speak Out against gender-based violence. Be an advocate for women, and be more than a bystander. Through education, awareness and resources, we can end gender-based violence together.


MentorAction has various programs to get everyone involved in ending gender-based violence. Through our Steel City Ally program, Community Leader Program, and other opportunities, our volunteers learn the skills to be a role model in the community and lead by example.
