RESPECT! Partners

Since 2008, the RESPECT! Campaign has been fortunate to collaborate with a select group of corporate partners. We refer to these corporations as our RESPECT! Partners. Each partner has worked with Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, closely to create a meaningful and mutually beneficial partnership.


Macy's has a strong history of support for family violence prevention and awareness programs in many of the cities in which it operates.  As part of their continued dedication in the fight against dating and domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse, Macy's is the founding national partner of the RESPECT! Campaign.  Macy's donates a portion of all in-store proceeds from Macy's Shop for a Cause to Futures Without Violence.Read More...

Campaign and our programs to engage men and boys in positive solutions for relationship violence prevention, Dockers is standing with us to encourage men to teach boys early and often, what it means to be a real man, and that violence does not equal strength.Read More...

Sugar Network

One in three women will experience some form of abuse in her lifetime, and so it is critical that the RESPECT! Campaign reach women of all ages in an effort to promote awareness and opportunities to participate in positive solutions. As one of the fastest-growing online networks for women, we were thrilled when Sugar, Inc., publisher of more than 10 women-focused sites, including PopSugar, TresSugar, LilSugar, and the PopSugar network, agreed to join forces with the RESPECT! Campaign to help educate and empower their audience to take a stand against dating and domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Together, we can create futures without violence.


Text RESPECT! is made possible in part by the generous support of the Mobile Giving Foundation.
