Dallas Men Against Abuse is proud to announce that more than 20,000 people took the pledge against domestic violence at DallasMen.org from November 3 – 10, 2013. Adamson High School tallied the most pledges with a whopping 8,216, earning its football team a home game to be played next season at AT&T Stadium. The selected game will be announced after coordination between the Dallas Independent School District and Dallas Cowboys organization has concluded.
Participants included all DISD and RISD high schools with varsity football teams, along with Jesuit and Bishop Dunne private schools. Wilson finished second with 7,140 pledges, and Jefferson finished third with 2,018.
“I am so proud of the young men in our community for taking a stand against domestic violence,” Mayor Mike Rawlings said. “Thank you to all of the schools for agreeing to take part in this important effort and to the Dallas Cowboys for generously hosting one of Adamson’s games next season.”
