A CALL TO MEN, Womanspace's 25th Annual Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award Honoree

December 3, 2018 – Womanspace is pleased to announce our 25th Annual Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award honoree, Tony Porter, founder and CEO of the violence prevention organization A CALL TO MEN. Mr. Porter will be honored at our award event on May 23, 2019 from 5:30-9:00 PM at the Hyatt Regency Princeton. A CALL TO MEN educates men all over the world on healthy, respectful manhood.  Embracing and promoting a healthy, respectful manhood prevents violence against women, sexual assault and harassment, bullying and many other social ills.

 

Mr. Porter stated, "A CALL TO MEN is proud to stand in solidarity with Womanspace, working to promote healthy manhood and prevent all forms of violence and discrimination against all women and girls.  We are honored to accept the Barbara Boggs Sigmund Award and grateful to be included among the past recipients, many of whom are friends and supporters."

 

Barbara Boggs Sigmund Event Committee Chair Michelle Bajwa added, "I've come to identify domestic violence, sexual abuse and gender inequality as a humanitarian crisis vs. limiting it to a "women's issue," and the current climate has a lot to do with that. This is why I am so excited and moved by this year's Honoree, Tony Porter, CEO of A CALL TO MEN. Male allyship is imperative to our mission of preventing domestic violence and sexual abuse. The opportunity to take a stand with Mr. Porter and A CALL TO MEN is a sign of our mutual intentionality in this regard and that is thrilling!"

 

Tickets to this event, which benefits Womanspace and our clients, will be available at www.womanspace.org. In addition, there are several sponsorship and advertising opportunities for individuals and organizations. Seating is limited, so advanced registration is highly encouraged. Please join us for an empowering evening honoring Mr. Porter and his groundbreaking work.
