AMEND Together

A- A A+

Changing a culture that supports violence against women by teaching healthy masculinity and respect.

AMEND Together (formerly called MEND) is a primary prevention initiative is dedicated to ending the epidemic of violence against women and girls by empowering young men and boys to become catalysts for cultural change. Together, we seek to challenge the culture that supports violence, cultivate healthy masculinity in men and boys, and change the future for women and girls.  AMEND Together partners with Metro Nashville Public Schools to provide AMEND clubs across the city where hundreds of boys are provided a safe space to talk about healthy masculinity and gender-based violence.

Of the many things I’ve learned in the AMEND club, learning about the objectification and violence against women touched my spirit the greatest…I have a wonderful mother and beautiful sisters that I love dearly, I can’t imagine anyone verbally, physically, and mentally destroying their being and self-worth because society has given men the “green light” to treat and display women in a negative light.
