Day After Day: Promoting Healthy Masculinities During the COVID-19 Pandemic 

Presented by: David Garzon, White Ribbon.
This Resource Spotlight was presented and recorded on June 7, 2022.

In 2021, White Ribbon launched Day After Day, a public service announcement that speaks directly to men who are using, or at risk of using, gender-based violence as a response to the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this Resource Spotlight, White Ribbon spoke about the goals and impact of this campaign as well as about the intersections between gender-based violence, masculinities and the COVID 19 era. White Ribbon also shared useful tools and practices in the promotion of healthy masculinities.
