The Men’s Anti-violence Network of Utah has a vision. we want to see a Utah – and an America – that is completely free of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and other kinds of interpersonal violence.
Want to do something positive to help prevent interpersonal violence?Take the Pledge
The Men’s Anti-violence Network of Utah (MAN) was formed in 2007 by men concerned about continuing interpersonal violence in Utah and wanting to do something to make the state safer. Today, MAN of Utah continues to grow its membership and is working closely with the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA), the Utah Domestic Violence Council (UDVC), the Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ) and other partners to prevent interpersonal violence in Utah.
MAN charges no dues to its members. We are supported by public grants and private contributions from businesses, foundations and individuals. MAN of Utah is not affiliated with any national organization.
MAN’s mission is to end domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and other forms of interpersonal violence in Utah by increasing public awareness of violence issues, actively engaging men in prevention efforts, advocating for more effective anti-violence policy, and ensuring that males of all ages understand appropriate male behaviors.
MAN’s goals are to help facilitate the following changes in Utah:
- Men will better recognize that violence is not an effective form of violence management, and will behave more appropriately towards other men, women and children.
- Men will take a leadership role in promoting respect and support for other men, women and children; and will effectively intervene when they are bystanders to potentially violent situations.
- Men will fulfill their leadership roles in teaching boys that real strength comes through valuing, respecting and supporting others.
- Men will help facilitate stronger anti-violence legislation and other public policy solutions.

I Recognize as a Man That...
Healthy relationships are based on respect for others, and conflict can be managed effectively without ever resorting to violence.
Interpersonal violence in all forms is unacceptable, and those who commit violence should face consequences for their choices.
Both women and men are victims and survivors of interpersonal violence.
United with women, men can reduce and eventually eliminate violence against women and men.
I am a better man when I place respect and compassion foremost in my relationships with others.
I can make a positive difference in the lives of family, friends, and others through my words and actions.
I, [Your Name Here], pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse or other forms of violence against women, men and children.
I, [Your Name Here], will encourage men and mentor boys to live violence-free, and I will work together with other men and women to end all interpersonal violence.
