Stanley Green is the first male survivor of domestic violence to present the opening keynote at a professional/academic conference on family violence. His international advocacy for victims of intimate partner violence spans more than 20 years and he was the founding co-chair of the Male Victims/Survivors Task Force of the Los Angeles County Domestic Violence Council.
Mr. Green has appeared on ABC News 20/20, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and numerous other print and broadcast media in the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America. He has conducted trainings for social service agencies and Native American organizations in the USA and Canada. He has also presented to numerous universities and military institutions—including the US Army Academy of Health Sciences.
Mr. Green has testified at a hearing on insurance industry discrimination against victims of domestic violence conducted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, by invitation of then-Washington State Insurance Commissioner Deborah Senn; and a similar hearing conducted by US-Senator Ron Wyden, then a member of the US House of Representatives from Oregon. Mr. Green served as the only man on the legislative committee of the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs from 1997 - 2001 and served on the Public Information Committee of the Los Angeles County Domestic Violence Council from 1992 to 1993.
In 1999, Mr. Green co-launched the effort to include a nondiscrimination clause in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). He testified at nine meetings of the US President's National Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women; the US Office on Violence Against Women awarded Mr. Green a scholarship to attend the invitation-only Symposium celebrating the 10th anniversary of VAWA, held in Washington, DC, in September 2004. President Barak Obama signed a bipartisan-supported nondiscrimination clause into VAWA in 2013. This is the first Federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, and sexual orientation and gender identity—actual or perceived.
Mr. Green is currently Director of Intimate Partner Violence Prevention for the Men’s Health Network, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in DC.
