Men Against Violence is a peer educator organization on campus that was founded in 1997. The organization educates students about the causes and effects of violence.

When?
5:30 p.m. every Thursday in Texas State’s Student Health Center (298 Student Center Drive)

Purpose?
“Men Against Violence is a peer educator organization that focuses on raising awareness to violence prevention and also the issues that come along with sexual violence, intimate partners violence, hate crimes and stalking, and also negative views on masculinity — trying to improve the masculine relationship with others.” — ┬áHumberto Reveles, Men Against Violence president

Who should join?
“Anyone who thinks that violence against another person is wrong should come to Men Against Violence. I know that there is men in the name and that leads to thinking it is a man only organization, but that is only because we are trying to mobilize and activate men to be a part of the violence prevention conversation. For such a long time it’s just been women talking about it, it’s been a feminist issue, it’s been just an idea where only women are victims of violence and that’s not the case. Men are victims as well and it impacts everyone, so everyone should be a part of the solution.” — Reveles

How do students get involved?
“All of our meetings are open, just come on in and we will show you where to sit. Usually we have presentations where we have guest speakers or documentaries we are showing, just to get the conversation going, where we are talking about violence issues.” — Reveles
