Man Up is a global campaign to activate youth to stop violence against women and girls. Our call to action challenges each of us to “man up” and declare that violence against women and girls must end.
In order to break the cycle of trauma and misinformation unabated violence against women and girls bestows on individuals, families, communities and societies around the world, Man Up Campaign was created to give young people a voice in developing models of change that truly address this issue.
Through the universal platforms of sport, music, technology and the arts, Man Up Campaign is partnering with young men and women around the world by providing innovative training, resources and support to youth informed initiatives. This partnership works to build a network of young advocates and defenders, linking their efforts to those of community based and mainstream organizations, entertainment and sports communities, non-profits and corporations towards our common cause.
The Man Up Campaign brought together a prestigious team of delegates from 24 countries, along with artists, athletes and activists to launch a five-year campaign at an inaugural Young Leaders Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We plan to will to bring another group of delegates, artists, athletes and activists to a Young Leaders Summit in London in 2012.
