Men Against Sexual Assualt (MASA)
Men Against Sexual Assault, or MASA, was formed to educate men about the facts and myths regarding sexual assault. The primary goals are to inform the public and prevent the continuance of sexual crimes. Targeting a male-only audience allows MASA to address some serious and controversial issues through hour-long presentations and open discussions. Mixed gender groups allow people to open up lines of communication about some of these important issues. By providing the population, particularly males, with the necessary information, the occurrence of sexual assault can be reduced.

Emerge's mission is to eliminate violence in intimate relationships. In working toward this goal, Emerge seeks to educate individual abusers, prevent young people from learning to accept violence in their relationships, improve institutional responses to domestic violence, and increase public awareness about the causes and solutions to partner violence. With the development of parenting education groups for fathers, Emerge has recently expanded its mission to include a goal of helping men to become more responsible parents.

We respect men, and when we ask them to help out, respect makes all the difference. We offer simple ways to take action; most of us are not interested in committee work or meeting to discuss masculinity issues. In Gloucester, we started by asking Will you join a lot of us in ending our silence about domestic abuse? We are planning to Many deeper conversations come later. When we carry GMADA's messages in our attitudes, stickered to the back of ours cars or trucks, or printed on our t-shirts conversations occur wherever we go. In this way we are talking about the change and doing the change at the same time. Our hope is that the GMADA model will spread around the country mainly by way of battered women's agencies, rape crisis centers and domestic violence roundtables. We men need to rely on the experience and wisdom local women's agencies have gathered over the past 25 years. There is also a great deal of healing for both men and women that can come from doing this work together.
