“Each man has his own unique strength. But we have one common power – to stand against domestic violence and abuse.”
MAN UP is about the positive and powerful role that men can play in ending domestic violence, in challenging abuse and supporting women and children.
About a year ago, Ireland’s UFC Mixed Martial Arts star Cathal Pendred, approached SAFE Ireland. He wondered if there was anything he could do to help our campaign to promote the positive role that men can play in raising awareness about, and stopping, domestic violence and abuse.
Cathal’s understanding, concern and thoughtfulness on the subject of domestic violence were impressive. His commitment is an amazing example of how large numbers of men reject domestic violence and are willing to do something about it.
