Dr. Jackson Katz, currently living in Los Angeles, is an influential educator, among many other things, who has been dubbed one of America’s leading anti-sexist male activists. He is the creator and co-founder of the Mentors in Violence Prevention program at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society, which is the most utilized gender violence prevention program in college and professional athletics. This program used the “bystander” approach, which is focused on the role of peers in different settings such as work, school and teams. This approach is now a mainstream practice in domestic violence. Katz is a true innovator who has achieved a lot and proved his prominence in domestic violence issues. Along with his accomplishments in MVP, he was a member of the U.S. Secretary of Defense’s Task Force on Domestic Violence in the military from 2000-2003.  Katz is an author, filmmaker and social theorist who will continue to inspire many through his insight and dedication.
