I came to know Ben first through my journey to have the mission of doing oral histories of survivors of domestic violence. He hast been a great mentor and friend along the journey and I am so excited in having him on my radio show. Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (www.nomas.org) and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He has performed his one-man play, "Voices of Men" in 43 states and Canada. Ben has spoken and performed at colleges, high schools, military installations, public theatres, conferences, houses of worship and juvenile detention facilities. For the past 17 years, Ben has worked as a prevention educator for rape crisis centers, domestic violence programs, and state coalitions. He is an advisory board member for the White Ribbon Campaign in the United Kingdom. Ben has received recognition and praise for his work to end men’s violence against women, sexism, homophobia, racism and other forms of oppression. Ben began his activist career at age 19 in 1986 by walking 3700 miles across the United States on the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament. He organized and walked on two 300 Mile Walks Against Violence Against Women in his home state of Massachusetts. Ben identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world and in themselves. He met and fell in love with his incredible wife, Lucinda, seven years ago while they were both doing improvisational comedy in Maine. They live in Maynard, MA and have no children except themselves.
