ARIZONA – The Arizona Sheriffs’ Association has adopted the Man Up Crusade to raise awareness about domestic violence. All 15 Arizona Sheriffs voted to endorse and participate in the Man Up Crusade.
“The Arizona Sheriff’s Association (ASA) is honored to be a partner with the Man Up Crusade in supporting this honorable cause and to help spread the word with our county family advocacy centers and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioned rodeos held in our Arizona counties,” said Sheriff Jim Driscoll, ASA President.
The Man Up Crusade was created by Canyon County Sheriff, Kieran Donahue after seeing first-hand the traumatic effects that domestic violence has on victims and their families.
According to the ASA, national statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience domestic violence in their life time.
The Man Up’s Crusade is endorsed and supported by the Western States Sheriffs’ Association, the Southwest Border Sheriffs Coalition, the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas and the Idaho Sheriffs’ Association and also has a letter of support by the National Sheriffs Association.
