Great Men ColorThe Bay Area Women’s Center believes that men play a crucial role in promoting “domestic peace” in our community. We want to capture the positive energy, influence and strength of the men in our community to make a real difference. By participating in this campaign, men will be sending an important message to those who commit violence and to our community as a whole.  We look forward to a day when no one in our community will tolerate domestic and sexual violence.
