Latino men start domestic violence awareness campaign

Latino men are starting a new campaign to raise awareness of domestic violence in the Madison area.

Proyecto Dignidad, or the Dignity Project, will reach out to men who are domestic abuse victims. It will also spread information on violence and abuse against both genders and reach out to the community in an effort to stop abuse.

The movement will join local domestic abuse organizations End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin and UNIDOS Against Domestic Violence.

Those groups welcome the effort and its perspective.

“[The group is] challenging other men to think about their sexism and gender-based remarks that demean women and can contribute to violence against women,” said Patti Seger, executive director of End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin.
