The 10×10 Campaign is open to any man or boy who wants to take action to prevent intimate partner violence, dating violence and stalking in their community. Even though most men are not part of the problem, they must be part of the solution. Men and boys are well-positioned to talk to other men and boys about preventing intimate partner violence.
Increasing your own awareness on the issue of intimate partner violence is merely the first step. With the tools that the 10×10 Campaign will give you, you can carry on the conversation and make others aware of the impact intimate partner violence, dating violence, and stalking have on society. For more information, contact Julie Hoagland at 860-457-4751. This event is sponsored by Eastern Connecticut State University, the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and United Services, Inc. It is free and open to the public.
