ACALLTOMEN Set to Announce New Strategic Technology Alliance at November Fund Raising Event

A CALL TO MEN (www.acalltomen.org) is a leading national men's organization addressing violence against women and the eradication of sexism. Their mission is to galvanize a national movement of men committed to ending violence against women.

Through seminars, workshops and other educational vehicles, A CALL TO MEN challenges men to reconsider their long held beliefs about women, in an effort to create a more just society. We achieve this by encouraging change in the behaviors of men through a re-education and training process that challenges sexism.

By strategizing with colleges, corporations, government agencies, non-profit and grassroots organizations across the United States, we help to organize communities in order to raise awareness and get men involved in ending men's violence against women. Our vision is to shift social norms that define manhood in our culture, and produce a national movement of men committed to ending violence against women.

In order to improve efficiency, reach, and general communication, ACALLTOMEN has entered into a strategic technology alliance with VIA3 from VIACK, which will provide widespread web conferencing benefits to its global network of 20,000. By teaming up with key corporate and individual sponsorship, ACALLTOMEN will be able to recognize impactful growth and organizational development in ways not previously available. Instead of relying on email, phone calls, snail mail, and faxes, ACALLTOMEN can now be fully connected, communicative, and collaborative with online meetings, presentations, and collaboration. Membership growth, organizational effectiveness, outreach, counseling, and connecting disparate groups will all become instantly possible.

This strategic alliance will be announced at the November 19th ACALLTOMEN meeting in New York City. Tony Porter and Ted Bunch, Co-founders of A CALL TO MEN, will be attending, as well as many known philanthropists, entertainment figures, and business leaders.

As part of the strategic technology alliance coming to fruition with the sponsors, all current and future individuals in the ACALLTOMEN network will be granted a free professional VIA3 license. In addition, all businesses associated with ACALLTOMEN will receive an exclusive price for private deployment of VIA3.
