FREE BEER & LEARN EVENT – June 19th
YWCA’s Good Guys welcome you to learn more about this critical movement at this free Beer & Learn event. Enjoy complimentary, locally crafted beer from River City Brewing on June 19th, 5-6pm, on the beautiful outdoor patio at McKinstry, 850 E Spokane Falls Blvd #100, Spokane, WA 99202. Register below.
We want the community to know that the region recognizes and supports YWCA Spokane’s efforts to end domestic violence (DV).
Together we can make a clear, strong, public statement that domestic violence is not ok and will not be accepted.
Domestic Violence is a COMMUNITY epidemic
- Domestic violence is the number 1 call to 911 in Spokane.
- 1 in 3 women & 1 in 4 men will be victim to domestic violence in their lifetime.
- 1490 reported children & youth were directly impacted by family violence last year; another 580 witnessed the violence.
- Less than 15% of incidents get reported.
This is not a women’s issue. It is a a community issue. Something that we must work together to bring an end to.
WHO ARE THE YWCA SPOKANE GOODGUYS
Spokane men who stand with YWCA Spokane to end domestic violence in our community.
Co-founders and long-time YWCA supporters, Doug Kelley of Avista and Manny Hochheimer of Numerica Credit Union, joined together with YWCA to create a collaborative effort of support called Good Guys.
Good Guys is a group that started with an idea in 2015, when Doug Kelley was challenged to put together a men’s table for YWCA’s largest fundraiser of the year, the Women of Achievement awards luncheon. As he learned more about how domestic violence impacts our community and the critical importance of YWCA’s work, he knew more had to be done.
