The mission of
Schenectady Stand Up Guys is to raise awareness
about menís violence against women and girls and
to promote gender equality in our community. We
accomplish this mission through education,
community projects and by holding events and
activities that raise awareness.
70% of Schenectady Police calls for
domestic (family related and alike).
50% of the District attorney's cases
70-80% of the Family Court cases are
50% of the one Public Defender was
This is a community-wide problem. It affects
girls and boys, men and women. It is a crime that
victimizes women. You can find it in any
neighborhood; any business; houses of worship
and any school.
Schenectady is spending a lot of money for a
less than effective response!
We continue to reach out to
men who have had a mother, sister, aunt,
grandmother, daughter, niece, neighbor, friend,
co-worker, classmate (any woman they know) who
has experienced domestic violence or abuse, sexual
assault, molestation, dating violence, sexual
harassment or stalking in her lifetime. We are
urging men, instead of being a sympathetic
by-stander or merely coping with related anger
with no place to put it, to join this profoundly
necessary cause. We are asking all men to make
it personal, join us, and make a difference. If
you are such a guy or if you know such a guy,
come see what we are about! Please encourage
anyone that you know to join us- of course, men
and women. JOIN US TODAY!
