Dear A CALL TO MEN Family:
Yesterday, I joined the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence for what was truly a courageous conversation. In front of 400+ advocates and survivors, I interviewed Ray Rice about his five-year journey to rebuild his family and to help boys and young men. He started the conversation sharing to the survivors in the room, "There are never enough apologies." At the end of our discussion, Ray received a standing ovation. Survivor after survivor shared with me - and publicly - how healing it was to hear him speak. They said things like:
"Hearing you say the words 'I'm sorry' has given me so much hope."
"I didn't expect to experience deep healing today."
