The pledge stated: "I pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls." The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears signed the pledge also, as did Governor Sean Parnell, who spoke to the fans in attendance. In 2009 Parnell pledged that Alaska would take every step necessary to stop the epidemic of domestic violence, sexual assault and child sexual abuse in Alaska.

Coaching Boys into Men has been championed by the Falcons and Crimson Bears, with many opposing teams taking the pledge while in Juneau and local middle school sports teams becoming involved as well.
