New York Giants Linebacker Mark Herzlich was presented with A Call To Men’s Next Generation of Manhood Award last week by his wife Danielle at the yearly gala.
If you want to rest my manhood don’t challenge me to a push-up contest… Ask my wife how I treat her, ask my friends if I stand up for what I believe in, ask what really happens behind closed doors. – Mark Herzlich
Herzlich continues to be a strong voice against domestic violence and remains as one of his off the field passions.
Mission Statement / Vision of A Call To Men
A CALL TO MEN is a leading national violence prevention organization providing training and education for men, boys and communities. Our aim is to shift social norms that negatively impact our culture and promote a more healthy and respectful definition of manhood. We believe that preventing domestic and sexual violence is primarily the responsibility of men. Although historically it has been almost entirely women who have been at the forefront addressing this issue, we think it is essential that men play a primary role in the solution. To do that, well-meaning men…men who, for the most part don’t see themselves as part of the problem…need to get involved. Our vision is to shift social norms that define manhood in our culture and create a world where women and girls are valued and safe.
