TEN MEN is made up of Rhode Island men from diverse walks of life who have a common vision — a world without domestic violence. Most men are not violent in their relationships. But, one man is one man too many.
That is why TEN MEN came together — to reach everyday men who are not sure how to help, and therefore remain silent in the face of other men's violence. TEN MEN is the first statewide effort made up of pioneering, male leaders who have stepped forward and are committed to breaking that silence.
