OPDV Coaching Boys Into Men posterDid you know...
Over 1 million New Yorkers were exposed to OPDV’s Coaching Boys Into Men campaign.

Post campaign surveys indicate that individuals who saw the campaign were more likely than those who had not seen it to feel they can make a difference on the issue, and to have actually spoken to boys about violence against women and girls.

(The campaign was originally developed by the Family Violence Prevention Fund with the Ad Council and was expanded and customized for New York State. Post campaign surveys prepared and developed by the Ad Council).
