Miami-Dade has the highest rate of domestic violence in all of Florida. According to published reports, there were 25,000 reported cases of domestic violence reported in the county in the past five years.
DADE MEN is a series of photo exhibitions highlighting prominent and enlightened Miami men. Launched on Oct. 1, 2015, the aim of the exhibition is to raise awareness on gender-based violence, elevate the collaboration of local communities in this pervasive issue and make Miami safer for women and girls.
Through the exhibit, related workshops and events, the Millennials Project intends to mobilize 25,000 men in the next years as supporters and allies in the most important social movement of our generation: the movement to end all forms of violence against women.
The event will include complimentary Hors d’oeurvres by el Pescador, music by Dj Don Fox and a special performance by Ovida Alva. All proceeds will support violence prevention initiatives and girls’ education in Haiti.
