The Fifth Annual Father’s Day Pledge Ceremony will showcase the region’s leaders who are standing up and speaking out against gender violence. Sexual assault and domestic violence are preventable crimes, but change requires leadership. Part of a statewide campaign, this event invites men and women to be part of the solution. The Ceremony is an opportunity for community leaders and the public to sign their name to the Pledge, publicly vowing to take action to end domestic and sexual assault.
