Brothers United Against Domestic Violence (BUADV) is an organization started by Dr. Rodney Pearson. He was teaching a domestic violence class at a homeless shelter for women, completing an internship at a shelter for men and to his surprise his own daughter was experiencing violent treatment from a significant other, all at the very same time. Rather than reacting with violence towards his daughter’s boyfriend, Rodney decided to take action. He formed a nonprofit organization to bring awareness and to put an end to domestic violence in communities, families and relationships across the world.
Most domestic violence today is perpetrated by males against females. The culture of embracing and even celebrating males who try to prove their strength through violence and abuse is a part of our society and this is something that has to change. Our goal with BUADV is to register one million brothers of all ages, colors and status throughout the country, and repaint our community picture! Domestic violence is manifested in many ways. However, it is usually one intimate partner against the other. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors that can be sexual, physical, psychological, manipulation or economic coercion. Domestic violence is enacted against an adult, adolescent or child and is used to achieve, sustain, or regain power and control over those individuals.
*We have developed a basic curriculum that we believe brings awareness, develop skills, and will help end domestic violence everywhere. This curriculum is illustrated in what we call the “Peace Pie” which is composed of (1) Taking Responsibility (2) Effective Communication (3) Anger Management (4) Conflict Management and (5) Unconditional Love.
