sponsored by the Pirates on at PNC Park on Federal Street from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Attendees can learn how gendered violence impacts their community and how they can take a stand.

"Crisis Center North is excited to continue our partnership with the Pittsburgh Pirates in an effort to shape community perceptions about domestic violence,” says Grace Coleman, executive director of Crisis Center North. “The partnership stresses the importance of male engagement in the issue and underscores the fact that domestic violence is everyone's business."

The awareness night is part of the Father’s Day Pledge to End Gender Violence, a month-long campaign by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.

With the support of local agencies, community members, and organizations, the campaign is geared toward spreading awareness of domestic violence issues and resources for victims.

“All of Pittsburgh needs to come together. Now,” Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto says. “I applaud the Pirates and the Pennsylvania coalition against domestic leadership on this critical issue.”

“We salute the local, civic religious and business leaders who are working together to make Pittsburgh a model for our state in the campaign to end gender violence for the next generation,” says PCADV executive director Peg Dierkers.

Interested community members can also support the campaign on social media using the hashtag #FathersDayPledgePA.
