    Passive Programming: A Tiger’s Pledge to Jaguars and Panthers

    This pledge was created to motivate men to end violence against women.  To make it a little more relevant to residents, I sprinkled in song titles of Chris Brown, an entertainer who’s past domestic violence has recently resurfaced in the media.

    On Tuesday, November 1st, Brothers of the Suites, get together to discuss ending violence against women and how to create and maintain good relationships. Myself, Evan, Brooks, and Kevin created a successful social event, featuring wings and chilly made by our very own chef McCain lol. It was a great event and definitely opened the minds of many of the brothers who were in attendance.

    On February 18th, 2012 I created a passive program, centered around ending violence against women, recently named H.E.R.O. The program highlights celebrities who were effected by domestic violence. It also highlights domestic violence statistic and places to get help on both Spelman and Morehouse Campus. This program has received a lot of attention from the female visitors who enter the suites. They are glad that the issue is being highlighted and many of them look forward to the next program.
