The NFL’s Troy Vincent and Dwight Hollier, Los Angeles Rams La’Roi Glover to Headline A CALL TO MEN’s FREE Educational Event for Los Angeles-Area Coaches

Sunday, Nov 06, 2016

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A CALL TO MEN will host the fifth and final leg of its national A CALL TO COACHES tour, a series of FREE educational training events where coaches are empowered to build young men of character, to promote healthy, respectful manhood, and to decrease violence and discrimination against women and girls.

A CALL TO COACHES is modeled on the Healthy, Respectful Manhood / Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Prevention Training that A CALL TO MEN provides to the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA), the National Hockey League (NHL) and Major League Baseball (MLB). A recent Washington Post article reported a 40 percent reduction in arrests in the NFL last year. NFL executives attribute that to “education programs put in place over the past few years.” A CALL TO COACHES is a national initiative hosted by A CALL TO MEN in partnership with the NFL.

WHO:

   

TROY VINCENT, executive vice president of football operations for the NFL, will speak on how sports helped him turn the pain of domestic violence he experienced as a child into progress, and inspired his commitment to engage men across the nation to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

TONY PORTER, CEO of A CALL TO MEN and international leader on manhood, male socialization and its intersection with violence, and preventing violence against all women and girls, will conduct the Healthy, Respectful Manhood Training.
