No Excuse for Abuse

Today hundreds of people of all gender identities marched through downtown Syracuse in support of ending gender based violence. I am proud to have represented the Vera House, Inc. team but also my brothers the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. Chi Pi Chapter. We are grateful for a community that made a commitment in words that there is no excuse for abuse. Now we just have to do it. I am also proud of the young men from PSLA at Fowler and Nottingham who made commitments to be accountable to one another on the journey redefining masculinity. As we marched through downtown chanting no excuse for abuse, there was an energy that a least for today validated the feelings of survivors. Special thanks to Major League and the Major League Baseball Players Association for their funding support of the youth activity. Thank you honorary co-chairs Andrew Donovan and Frankie Jupiter.

Wade Davis, a former professional football player and current Vice President at Netflix, works to engage, educate, and empower men to better understand the attitudes and actions that are most associated with aspirational masculinity. In partnership with the White Ribbon Campaign of Vera House, this program seeks to unlock the potential of men and boys by seeking a world that is free of violence and abuse.

The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) of Vera House invites, equips and empowers men and boys as leaders in creating and sustaining healthy relationships in households and communities. Through education, advocacy, and philanthropy, we invite White Ribbon Campaign participants to actively promise each other a world that is free of violence and abuse.
