Dudes Against Violence Against Women - Because Duh
Breakthrough is a global human rights organization working to drive the culture change needed to build a world in which all people live with dignity, equality, and respect. Working out of centers in the U.S. and India, the organization uses a potent mix of media, arts, and tech to reach people where they are and inspire them to take bold action to challenge the status quo. Breakthrough often views the most crucial issues of our time through the lens of gender, because they believe that promoting equality for all genders is a pathway to promoting the human rights, and the humanity, of all people. Since 1999, the organization has also worked to promote immigrant rights, racial justice, and the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS.
In the U.S., Breakthrough works to change the attitudes and assumptions around gender that lead to violence and discrimination.
The organization emboldens young and emerging leaders to take action in their own spheres to challenge limiting, damaging gender norms. Breakthrough inspires them to promote new norms that enable everyone to reach their full potential—at home, in school, at work, online, and everywhere in between.
