Verizon Foundation: Abuse Deniers  
Dear Christian,
Thanks to all of your calls, emails, and protests across the country, Verizon has taken down the Monster video. The gender-biased video portrayed men as abusive monsters, boys as potential abusive monsters, and only women and girls as victims. 

Activists across the United States and Canada went to their local Verizon stores to raise awareness about the video. Read about one California protest here:  

Unfortunately, Verizon remains a hotbed of gender-biased misinformation, such as its Pinocchio-like claim that 'domestic violence is the single greatest cause of injury to women ages 15-44':     

We are asking on you to continue to call, email and protest at Verizon stores until this information is replaced with balanced information.

Print out copies of the new flyer: Then pass it out to customers as they enter the store, and make sure you give one to the manager and other store employees.

NCFM-Los Angeles Stages Protest Against Verizon’s Male-Bashing Anti-Father Video
December 12, 2011
On Saturday, 12/10/11 the Los Angeles chapter of the National Coalition For Men (NCFM) held a street demonstration outside Verizon to protest Verizon’s anti-father advertisements that depict fathers as “Monsters.”
Approximately 15 people participated in the rally, including members of Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), a faith-based organization founded by Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson that has a home for troubled young men. The rally was at the corner of 26th Street and Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica.
“Verizon finally pulled the ad, but the company has a history of anti-father ads, and we had a protest years ago for the same thing,” said Marc Angelucci, NCFM’s Vice President. “Also, a lot of Verizon‘s false, stereotyping information on domestic violence is still on their website .”
In addition to displaying a number of large signs saying things such as: “Verizon, Stop the Anti-Father Ads!,” “Honk For Dads Rights,” and “Stop Abuse For Everyone,” NCFM members spoke from a bullhorn and handed out flyers from the organization Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) , which is organizing a national protest against the ads.
