Fathering After Violence (FAV) is a national initiative developed by the Family Violence Prevention Fund and its partners to enhance the safety and well-being of women and children by motivating men to renounce their violence and become better fathers (or father figures) and more supportive parenting partners. The FAV campaign includes multi-lingual and multi-cultural poster versions. This version was developed specifically for American Indian and Alaska Native communities by a committee of leaders working in Native communities and on violence prevention and is co-sponsored by Mending the Sacred Hoop Technical Assistance Project. The 17” x 11" poster may be used in any community or health setting frequented by men and boys including Tribal offices, schools, gyms, batter’s intervention programs, health care facilities and visitation centers.
