About the Series
This project was supported by Grant No. 2015-CY-AX-0005 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women U.S. Department of Justice.

THE HALLS tells the stories of young men in Boston, and their struggles sifting through relationships, trauma, masculinity and their own identities. Tension starts building in their worlds when rumors swirl around the school about an accused rape of a student. Watch and explore their journey through… THE HALLS!
THE HALLS web series is co-funded by the Office on Violence Against Women Engaging Men in Preventing Sexual Assault, Domestic violence, Dating Violence and Stalking Grant Program and the Office on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Defending Childhood Initiative. The program is designed to engage young men in the conversation to end gender based violence against women and girls. The Boston Public Health Commission seeks not only to work to prevent gender based violence but to also promote healthy relationships amongst adolescent populations.
Our hope is that through storytelling, the web series inspires viewers to think and challenge themselves about all the messages that we are fed about how young men and young women are taught to act in relationships and free themselves to engage in positive alternatives.
