Dockers has teamed up with Futures Without Violence to promote the RESPECT! Campaign. During the “Month of Respect,” which began on Mother’s Day (May 8, 2011) and ends on Father’s Day (June 19, 2011), Dockers has committed to working closely with the organization to bring light to the widespread, and often undisclosed, problem of relationship abuse.
Dockers has not only pledged to donate $25,000, which will go to the campaign that mentors young boys to ensure that they are “respectful men of tomorrow,” they have also created a promotional video in support of the cause. The video, which will be available during the duration of the “Month of Respect,” calls people to make the pledge to publicly renounce relationship abuse and show their support for a future with healthy relationships.
Dockers will donate funds from the Levi Strauss & Co. Red Tab Foundation, as well as proceeds from the Facebook game, “Games that Give”, which can be found on Dockers Facebook page. Additionally, Dockers will be awarding six weekly $2,000 grants to Facebook users as part of their Wear The Pants Man Grants contest.
