In honor of Father’s Day on June 21st, Humboldt Domestic Violence Services is calling on the fathers, guardians, role models and leaders of the youth in our community to take a pledge to work to end domestic violence in their everyday lives. Just to be clear, individuals of any gender are invited to participate in this pledge. The reason we are launching a Father’s Day pledge specifically is because we recognize that our community, and society at large, has a specific need for positive masculine and male role models. Please read the pledge below. Please click each square below, and you’ll be directed to a separate page where you can read more details about how you can better engage in each point of the pledge.
