As a new mother I want to raise my son to love, respect and protect women. Thankfully my son not only has a strong independent mother but he also has an incredible father in his life to help show him how to be a true man and take care of and fight for all the women in his life. He has a father who not only treats his mother with respect but values her as an equal partner in their household. Trev and I are a team in raising our son and encouraging him to follow his dreams and treat everyone he meets, regardless of gender, age, colour or ethnic background that we are all part of one race. The human race.
Be a Maverick…not only for our daughters but for our sons.
"Maverick is a derivation of MAV: Men Against Violence. One Spark's MAVerick campaign is about men standing with the women and girls in their lives and lending their voices to ending violence against women. It started with a passionate dad wanting to ensure a better world for the women and girls in his life.
A maverick is a person who thinks or acts in an independent way. We need men to speak out against violence against women. Dads, brothers, partners, cousins, uncles, grandpas, co-workers, friends, sports teams: we need you to say it’s not ok. We need you to be a MAVerick.
To get involved with the campaign as an individual, team, or group, visit the MAVerick website at beamaverick.org
