WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden says it is time for young men to "stand up" against domestic violence.

Biden is speaking to the Democratic National Committee's women's leadership forum. He says the recent 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act shows the need to combat domestic violence against women in their teens and 20s.

President Barack Obama and Biden are unveiling a campaign Friday to target domestic violence on college campuses.

Biden will hold a roundtable discussion on domestic violence later in Denver, where he plans a fundraiser for Democrat Andrew Romanoff, who is challenging GOP congressman Mike Coffman in a competitive congressional district.
