Support Carolina Men Care - Get a T-shirt by signing up against family violence

UNC Hospitals' Beacon Child and Family Program is celebrating its 4th annual Carolina Men Care campaign which advocates for healthy non-violent relationships. The event is on Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the Children’s Hospital lobby.

This campaign encourages all men from UNC Health Care to sign a pledge to stand up and speak out against family violence. Health care providers play an important part in responding and advocating as a community to end domestic violence. Upon signing the pledge men will receive a T-shirt to show their outward support of domestic violence awareness. Our goal this year is to surpass the 350 signatures we received in 2009. This event will provide resources, FAQ’s, and activities to educate healthcare providers about the seriousness of family violence.

We are encouraging men who are interested in signing up beforehand to participate through our e-pledge icon at the bottom right hand corner of our website(

October is recognized nationally as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Carolina Men Care is a locally-run campaign that corresponds with the international White Ribbon campaign that promotes non-violence in relationships.
