(WHAS11) - A group of southern Indiana men have banded together to fight violence against women.

It was the first ever Men Against Violence Against Women Rally for Harrison County and Corydon, Indiana.

The Hoosier Hills Pact has been around for three years in southern Indiana but it's the first time it's held an event in Harrison County.

The Harrison County sheriff's office says since 2000, they've responded to at least 3000 domestic violence calls, which is about one every single day.

And that doesn't even include the ones Corydon police and Indiana State Police have responded to.

?"Although we see there's 3,000 calls. These are only the ones reported. Of the 3,000 there's probably 10,000 that didn't get reported. There's usually one in four that gets reported," said Sgt. Bryan Byrne, Harrison Co, Sheriff's Dept.

If you'd like to get involved in the Hoosier Hills Pact to stop violence against women, call 812-738-1262 in Corydon or 812-883-3318 in Salem, Indiana.
