We had a few requests at our last event on how to help with the important issues. Everybody has something to give and talents to lend!
You can donate for a tax deductible receipt through our national website. Please earmark the donation for Edmonton by checking the “I would like to designate this donation to a specific fund” checkbox and select Edmonton. WE REALLY NEED DONATIONS FOR THE VIRTUAL MEN’S CENTRE IN EDMONTON. We will use the funds to pay male-friendly psychologists to start private social services. Unfortunately, the majority of public funded mental health services still adhere to discredited Duluth model, which assumes that men cannot be victims of violence and sexual abuse. Click here to donate.
Add yourself to our volunteer database. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can spare a few hours a year. We need volunteer to work security and hand out brochures at our events. We will also need volunteers to work casinos, work to represent CAFE at associate events, etc..
Network for us! We need connections in the city and worldwide. If you know any resource, please don’t stay silent! Tell us about it! Email email@example.com if you know male-friendly psychologist, people who can lend a theatre space, a sympathetic corporation who would sponsor us, etc,,
Advocate for us! Be brave and tell the people around you that domestic abuse and sexual abuse against men and boys exists! Tell people about males comprising about 93 of workplace deaths. Tell people about the unfair court biases in family court, and the sad suicide stories. Everybody has a voice, and a true anecdote will reach that neighbor, family member, friend, colleague etc.. We realize these issues are controversial (and they shouldn’t be). The issues will only become mainstream if we talk about it and break the stigma.
If you have a little more time, we need people to work on executive board. If you can spare a few hours per week, we need an Event Officer.
