The 2023 SOS Strong Campaign begins June 15 with SOS Strong Ambassadors joining in an effort to be upstanders in the fight against sexual and domestic violence, stalking, human trafficking, child abuse and neglect. SOS Strong is an annual fundraiser that began in 2015 to highlight masculine role models that demonstrate positive examples of strength, community leadership, and fatherhood. These Ambassadors also demonstrate that abuse isn’t just a women’s problem, it’s everyone’s problem. The Ambassadors represent SOS by helping bring awareness to these important issues and by raising $1,000 each to support SOS programs. The first $5000 dollars raised during SOS Strong will be match by Kat and Tamir Zuckerman.
The 2023 SOS Strong Ambassadors are:
Each SOS Strong Ambassador has taken a pledge to lead by example, never blame victims, be a positive up-stander rather than a willing bystander, not engage in any acts of violence, stand up for someone in need and always use their voice to speak up for what is right. When men are strong in character, so are families, schools, and communities. In the SOS Strong Campaign, men and people of all masculine genders are featured from within the 5-county service area who display leadership, provide community support, and are dedicated to helping SOS stop sexual and domestic violence, stalking, human trafficking, child abuse and neglect.
SOS Strong will run from June 15 to July 20.
