- Emerge: Counseling and Education to Stop Domestic Violence www.emergedv.com
Emerge's mission is to eliminate violence in intimate relationships. In working toward this goal, Emerge seeks to educate individual abusers, prevent young people from learning to accept violence in their relationships, improve institutional responses to domestic violence, and increase public awareness about the causes and solutions to partner violence. With the development of parenting education groups for fathers, Emerge has recently expanded its mission to include a goal of helping men to become more responsible parents.
Efforts to include men in Pennsylvania’s anti-sexual violence movement have ranged from awareness campaigns locally in communities around the state, to rallies and pledge signing events at many of our commonwealth’s colleges and universities. Men have the power to address this important problem and take steps to end sexual violence.
Men Can Stop Rape (formerly Men's Rape Prevention Project) empowers male youth and the institutions that serve them to work as allies with women in preventing rape and other forms of men's violence. Through awareness-to-action education and community organizing, we promote gender equity and build men's capacity to be strong without being violent.
Men Ending Violence is a project of the Virginia Department of Health Division of Injury and Violence Prevention. This web site focuses on involving men in the reduction of sexual violence through education, training, funding and resources.
Men Stopping Violence works locally, nationally, and internationally to dismantle belief systems, social structures, and institutional practices that oppress women and children and dehumanize men themselves. We look to the violence against women's movement to keep the reality of the problem and the vision of the solution before us. We believe that all forms of oppression are interconnected. Social justice work in the areas of race, class, gender, age, and sexual orientation are all critical to ending violence against women.

These services include training, clinical supervision, program development, and conference presentations.
Primary Mission: To end men's sexual violence against women. In order to accomplish this goal, we shall follow these principles:
- To put the needs of survivors first, by respecting their confidentiality and helping to provide support in any manner that will help them in their recovery.
- To always act in a manner consistent with our teachings and to set an example for all men by treating every woman with respect. We will also reject all forms of discrimination as well as combat attitudes and social norms that lead to sexual violence.
- To educate men and participate in outreach that will help break the silence about and end violence against women. We will take an active role in ending rape and encourage others to do the same.
- To use the most effective research-proven means to accomplish our primary mission, including but not limited to the Men's Program. Accordingly, so long as rigorous social scientific research continues to strongly suggest that sexual assault peer education is most effective in a single-sex environment, we will limit our membership as an all-male group.
- To respect and support one another, as well as train a diverse and approachable group, in order to reach as much of the University community as possible.
- To participate in a larger community of people working for sexual assault education and advocacy while supporting and reinforcing its efforts.
The WRC is the largest effort in the world of men working to end men's violence against women. It relies on volunteer support and financial contributions from individuals and organizations. Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, condone nor remain silent about violence against women. Each year, we urge men and boys to wear a ribbon for one or two weeks, starting on November 25, the International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women.
