Craig Norberg-Bohm, the coordinator for the Men’s Initiative for Jane Doe Inc. (MIJD) since 2002, is also the founder and director of Massachusetts White Ribbon Day: Massachusetts White Ribbon Day Campaign Website.

As a project of Jane Doe Inc. (the Massachusetts Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence), the Men’s Initiative operates an information clearinghouse, electronic newsletter, and statewide network for the purpose of enabling male bystanders and allies to work on ending men’s violence.

Craig consults generally on organizational methods, community engagement strategy, primary prevention and education models for engaging men and boys. He is past president of the board of directors for Emerge, a program for offenders of domestic violence.

In 1978, Craig was one of the founders of RAVEN (Rape and Violence End Now) in St. Louis, Mo., one of the earliest men’s centers in the United States established to engage men to end men’s violence.

Craig was a contributor to the 2011 edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves.” This landmark publication has been translated and adapted into 30 different languages, including Armenian. The 700p book is in the AUA library and can be read online as a PDF file: http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/cms/assets/uploads/2013/10/Armenian_OBOS_20105.pdf
