January 31st TweetChat About Domestic Violence Features Verizon Foundation, Sportscaster James Brown, Movement Maker A Call to All Men and More
The Verizon Foundation and CBS Sportscaster James Brown are helping to get the conversation going during a special #YourVoiceCounts Twitter Chat before the Super Bowl. The Foundation’s Your Voice Counts campaign is all about equipping bystanders—especially men—with tools to start talking about domestic violence and raising awareness in their communities. During this special one-hour event, the Verizon Foundation, Foundation President Rose Stuckey Kirk (@VerizonGiving) and James Brown (@JBSportscaster) will talk to fans about what they can do to help end domestic violence, be role models for respect and promote healthy masculinity. In light of recent tragedies in the NFL community, such as the one out of Kansas City, people are talking about domestic violence, and it’s that conversation we hope to elevate and continue.
Your Voice Counts partners and leading advocates from Movement Maker organization, A CALL TO MEN (@LiveRESPECT), the Joyful Heart Foundation (@TheJHF), Joyful Heart’s Founder and President, actress Mariska Hargitay (@Mariska) NO MORE (@NOMOREorg), the National Domestic Violence Hotline (@NDVH) and the National Dating Abuse Helpline (@loveisrespect), will also share insights and resources on this critical topic.
The chat will give participants an opportunity to talk with NFL insiders, celebrities and advocates about domestic violence and sports, the role men, fathers and coaches and mentors play in prevention and more.
