If you've watched HLN...even in passing....you' ve probably picked up that protecting women and girls is something VERY close to my heart. From reading your tweets and FB comments...I know it is important to YOU as well.
Many of you know..it is my pleasure to serve as vice-president of the board of Men Stopping Violence, a really unique organization that has been around for 30 years. Men Stopping Violence (MSV) is unique because it works to end violence against women by getting men involved in building safer communities for women and girls.
On Saturday, October 15, 2011 MSV is holding its Annual Awards Dinner at the Loews Midtown Atlanta. I'm the honorary co-chair of the dinner again this year. Our emcee this year did such an outstanding job last year...we've invited him back...my friend..CNN anchor and author..Don Lemon.
Past honorees include Vice-President Joe Biden, Actor Hill Harper and Grammy award winning singer Tim McGraw. Our honorees this year are all making a difference in the work of empowering women and girls: Ann Stallard (Chair of the United Way), The Good Men Project and Victor Rivers (actor/activist). We are so excited to recognize all of their work. It will be a great night and we'd love to have you there!

Thank you...truly from the bottom of my heart,
