The BEST Party Model
Violence against women is 100% preventable. Men As Peacemakers has developed a suite of resources to shape campus environments and empower students for gender equity and prevention of violence against women.
Students’ values, beliefs, behaviors, and experiences are shaped by the social environment in their campus community. MAP’s BEST programming systematically shapes first year experience, residential life, athletics, party culture, and overall campus policy and protocol to prevent sexual and domestic violence. Our unique approach to preventing sexual assault on college campuses organizes and inspires students to create a genuine atmosphere of equity, safety, and respect that results in increased awareness of sexual assault, engagement of men on campus, safer parties, respectful athletic team cultures, and ultimately reduces sexual violence.
BEST Parties: Be Equal, Safe, and Trustworty
