Volunteers Needed for Focus Group

Dear Community,

Last year, in conjunction with the District’s Office of Victims Services, we launched the free mobile app and website, ASK DC, or Assault. Services. Knowledge. We need to identify participants for moderated focus group sessions to be held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 11:30am-1:30pm and 3:00pm-5:00pm and Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 11:00am-1:00pm and 3:00pm-5:00pm in a Metro-accessible business setting in Downtown DC. Adult volunteers ages 18 and older will be asked to participate in one of four, two-hour sessions. The following three categories of volunteers are needed:

Category 1:        
Current ASK DC users (male and female ages 18 and older preferred)
Category 2:        
Targeted adult males and females ages 18 and older who are aware of ASK DC but have never used it
Category 3:        
Targeted adult males and females ages 18 and older who are not aware of ASK DC at all

All information shared will be strictly confidential and used for internal research purposes only. No personal information will be used for unauthorized solicitation. Each participant will receive a $10 Visa gift card upon completion of the full session. Snacks and beverages will also be provided.

Your help in identifying adult participants will be very helpful. Please share this opportunity with your MOST and WISE high school seniors and MOST Campus members and with your friends, family members, and colleagues in the field. We ask that you provide the names and contact e-mail addresses of interested parties to Kate Flaherty at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by no later than Tuesday, December 2, 2014.

All the best,

The ASK DC Team

Register for Men Can Stop Rape's Upcoming Healthy Masculinity Training Institute


Why should you care about healthy masculinity? Because men who choose it choose to be strong without being violent. It’s a life-changer that benefits women and men.

This January, participate in the Washington, DC Healthy Masculinity Training Institute to learn the theories and develop the skills that have shaped the Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP). HMAP is a national two-year initiative designed to raise the visibility of healthy masculinity and build a new generation of male leaders across the country who model non-violent, emotionally healthy masculinity, serving as positive change-makers in society. 

Through three days of discussions about theory, interactive group exercises, role-playing, and multi-media presentations, the training institute presents participants with a framework to positively construct masculinity and to motivate men’s engagement in challenging the attitudes and behaviors that support violence against girls and women. This training is ideal for staff from universities, middle and high schools, law enforcement agencies, the US armed forces, statewide and local coalitions, service agencies, and government agencies.

The institute will provide you with the skills to promote healthy masculinity in your life, your organization, and your community and for you to organize a Healthy Masculinity Town Hall or Campus Conversation.

Become part of the Healthy Masculinity movement this winter! Register for the Institute here.
