Men Creating Peace (“MCP”) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit education program committed to helping people restore connections to themselves, their intimate partners, their families, and their communities. Violence is a learned, maladaptive coping strategy to get needs met. At MCP, participants learn new and healthy techniques of communicating and negotiating for what they need, from a place of equality.
MCP provides a safe environment for participants to interact with others who also struggle with violence. Our participants learn communication and active listening skills designed to create deeper intimacy in their relationships. By helping them hold themselves accountable for their actions, participants gain new coping strategies to successfully develop healthy relationships and create more peace in their lives. Don’t take it from us – hear it directly from our graduates.
The first class is always free!
One of the major contributing factors of domestic violence is that the perpetrator blames their victim(s) for their violence. MCP, through accountability and advocacy, supports participants to take responsibility for their abusive behavior(s). Participants in the program gain tools which empower them to stop their own violence. Through negotiating boundaries and agreements, they learn how to create healthy relationships. Participants in the program support one another to stop manipulating, insulting, raging, threatening, and assaulting as a way to get their needs met.
Men Creating Peace is committed to finding collaborative strategies to resolve the problem of violence in our society.
