SIOUXLAND MEN'S CAMPAIGN AGAINST VIOLENCE KICKS OFF

Sioux City, IA, Spring, 2004– The Center for the Prevention of Violence and the Waitt Family Foundation join the Family Violence Prevention Fund in kicking off the Men's Campaing Against Violence in Siouxland. Men who signed the pledge, contribute to violence prevention education and awareness efforts throughout the Siouxland area. Ted Waitt, Gateway founder and chairman of The Waitt Famlily Foundation, is honorary co-chair of the Siouxland Men's Campaign, working with his brother Norm Waitt Jr., they encourage all Soiuxland men to be part of the movement. "It's an issue I'm personally committed to," Waitt stated.

The campaign is based on the Family Violence Prevention Fund's "Founding Father's Campaign" launched in June of 2003 which featured a full-page advertisement in the New York Times. The ad featured the names of 350 prominent men nationwide who have made a commitment to the issue of violence and have pledged to carry the message to their homes, business and communities.
