Among their many programs for women, children, immigrants, and more are their public outreach campaigns that seek to prevent family violence through education and awareness. Recent campaigns include There's No Excuse for Domestic Violence, Coaching Boys into Men, which sought to inspire men to teach boys that violence does not equal strength, and See It and Stop It, an unprecedented multi-media public education campaign by and for teens.
