Lutheran Settlement House, in partnership with Mark Hudson’s family, friends and colleagues, Lunchbox Communications and the Sheller Family Foundation, is pleased to present Answering the Call to Service: The Mark Hudson Story. This documentary aims to tell Mark’s story to help shine a light on the important, and frequently overlooked, issue of men experiencing domestic violence.

You can be a part of the movement to end Domestic Violence. Here is how you can help change the story:

  • Host a screening of Answering the Call to Service: The Mark Hudson Story and have a community debriefing afterwards.
  • Volunteer with local domestic violence service agencies (to volunteer with LSH, email tfraser@lutheransettlement.org)
  • Speak up when you see possible abusive actions, no matter the gender of the person being targeted.
  • Talk to your kids, friends, and family about ways to take action, and share the stories of times you have done so.
  • Talk to young people about healthy relationships.
  • Call your government representatives and encourage them to fight for increased funding for all victims of Domestic Violence.

If you are interested in having Lutheran Settlement House facilitate a discussion about the documentary or would like to become a volunteer discussion facilitator, please email Toby Fraser at tfraser@lutheransettlement.org.
