October 3, 2019: Men’s March Against Domestic Violence Honolulu
October 3rd, 2019
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: ʻIolani Palace
Each year in Hawai‘i, 50,000 women between the ages of 18 and 64 are victims of domestic violence. For the past 25 years, the Men’s March Against Violence has worked to transform this culture of violence in Hawaiʻi. We must all unite to put an end to domestic violence in our community.
On Thursday, October 3rd 2019, walk the talk and take a stand against domestic violence!
The event will begin and end at ʻIolani Palace, with a march scheduled to leave around 11:45 AM. This will be followed by a rally featuring guest speakers, and a remembrance ceremony to honor the victims of domestic violence that have passed in the last year.
While men are asked to march, the community at-large is urged to support them. The event is meant to raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence and how to prevent such incidents from taking place as well as provide resources to victims seeking help. Over 1,000 people participated in last year’s march and rally, and we expect even more people this year.
Sponsors of the event include Catholic Charities of Hawaiʻi, Central Pacific Bank, Chaminade University, the City & County of Honolulu, Domestic Violence Action Center, Kaiser Permanente, Mental Health America of Hawaiʻi, Parents And Children Together (PACT), and UH Mānoa.
