Posters bearing words like “Consent is BAE (before anything else),” or “men-tality against brutality” were held high during the 25th Annual Men’s March Against Domestic Violence. An estimated 1,000+ people from different organizations including the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) marched from ʻIolani Palace, around the streets of downtown Honolulu and ended at the State Capitol.
Jacoby was very proud to march alongside JABSOM Dean Jerris Hedges, a longtime and active participant in the march, throughout the afternoon. He said Dean Hedges sets an example for the physician leader that our students aspire to become.
The march officially ended with a rally at ʻIolani Palace Palace. Water and light snacks were provided for all participants as well as 500 individual servings of ice cream donated by Meadow Gold.
Why we march
Sponsors of the March include Catholic Charities of Hawaii, Central Pacific Bank, Chaminade University, the City & County of Honolulu, Domestic Violence Action Center, Kaiser Permanente, Mental Health America of Hawaii, Parents And Children Together (PACT), and UH Manoa.
