Men Stopping Violence (MSV) traveled to San Antonio, Texas, in October to conduct a two-day Because We Have Daughters® (BWHD) training in conjunction with the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Team at Lackland Air Force Base.
For the first two years of the BWHD initiative, MSV conducted gatherings throughout metro Atlanta, offering the program to individuals and groups. In order to expand the reach of the program, last year the organization began training other groups to conduct their own BWHD projects. MSV’s first partner in this endeavor was Open Word Christian Ministries in Fairburn, Ga., which now conducts a BWHD program at the church. MSV has since conducted three other BWHD trainings, including on two military bases.
