"I Choose" Mission Statement

CCADV is introducing a new campaign focused on engaging boys, and men, to make positive life choices that don’t involve violence. The campaign is called “I Choose.” It stems from the idea that violence is a choice - and with the right mentors and the right tools, boys can choose to rise above domestic violence. Together, we are working towards educating boys about making good life choices: “I Choose respect;” “I Choose not to normalize violence towards women;” “I Choose to take a stand against domestic violence.”

What’s more, we understand that having successful male role models, boys can begin to understand how good choices can result in life affirming successes. We invite you to participate as an ambassador of the "I Choose" campaign and share your voice to help put an end to domestic violence. Post your video on our Facebook Page (@CTCoalitionAgainstDomesticViolence) using the hashtag #IChooseCTCADV. And be sure to check out our Social Media Toolkit available for download below! We thank you.

“Men are so well positioned in our society to positively influence our work to stop
violence against women given their roles as fathers, coaches, mentors and policy makers.
We are fortunate to have men in Connecticut who are committed to working collectively
to help CCADV achieve its mission to address domestic violence and be a catalyst for
change. We are hopeful that the ‘I Choose” campaign will provide a ripple effect and
inspire more men to lead the way toward ending violence toward women and girls.”

- Karen Jarmoc, CCADV President & CEO
