**From One Million Men to a handful of Dudes

In March of 2013, with the launch of Breakthrough’s Ring the Bell: One Million Men, One Million Promises campaign, Breakthrough asked men worldwide to step up and make violence against women their issue. Breakthrough friend Dean Obeidallah did just that and pledged to devote his skills—comedy and advocacy—toward helping us launch this show in 2014.

Now we’re asking you to step up and let the world know that gender based violence isn’t just a women’s issue, but that it is everyone’s issue. Even if you can’t attend the show (though we hope you do!), you can still take part in #Dudes19. Sign up below and we’ll send you more information on how you can get involved!
