    “Please join us on May 9th for Emerge!’s 15th Annual Mother of the Year Luncheon as we celebrate the strength and success of mothers who have overcome domestic abuse to find safety and healing. This year, we will also welcome internationally renowned keynote speaker Tony Porter, co-founder of A CALL TO MEN, who will engage us with a powerful look at the underlying causes of intimate partner violence, and speak to the ways in which men and boys can positively impact these social issues. Like Emerge!, A CALL TO MEN is working to address domestic abuse as a collective community issue, needing a collective community solution. Join us as we launch a critical initiative—together we can create a community where all homes are safe.”
