A presentation is being given to the NFL regarding domestic violence on Wednesday in a video that was done by a former NFL player.
Joe Ehrmann was a defensive tackel for 10 pro seasons from 1973-1982. Ehrmann says, imagine what it would be like to see a loved one being subjected to abuse. “Think about the role you have to raise up a generation of men that are going to have a clarity, have the moral courage to call out other men”. Ehrmann has a coach life foundation called Coach for America that helps you improve “your team on the field, in the office and at home”.
The video is a 40 minute presentation that the league has put together with outside advisers. Their goal is to educate everyone in the NFL about spousal abuse, child abuse, sexual assault and the other domestic violence topics.
Deana Garner, the league’s director of player engagement and education said, ” increasing understanding of the prevalence in society of these issues and how it impacts the NFL. So many people don’t understand how complicated domestic violence is. This is a unique crime committed across all demographics.”
