Opening eyes and changing lives

Resolve of Greater Rochester, Inc. began as two separate organizations, Safe Journey, and Stand Up Guys. Both organizations were searching for ways to make a greater difference in the fight to end violence against women. Safe Journey was focused on intervention with female survivors and prevention education with youth and the general community; while Stand Up Guys focused on prevention by engaging men in conversations about the violence done to women, by men.


Out of our discussions, we realized that working together we could have a greater impact and indeed, open eyes and change lives.
