Silent Tears of Men


"Pathways to Wellness"


An Idea Is Born

Silent Tears of Men is the brainchild of Carol Adams, Founder of The Carol Adams Foundation, Phillip White, Founder of Six Men Connection and Master Fatherhood Trainer and Stephan “Coach” Hicks, Founder and Executive Director of My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond. The combined mission of Silent Tears of Men and its related program, originated from conversations between these pioneers about the tragic loss of loved ones due to domestic violence and how to process the pain left behind.


Other members of the core planning team are Tammie Mobley, Founder of Flawless Imperfection, LLC and empowerment coach, James Harris, Founder of Men to Heal and the Healing Hub, Vincent Ellis White, author of Finding Chris My Father, and Sean Powell, Founder of Engage the Foundation.

Mission and Vision

Many men suffer in silence because they do not feel that they have other men whom they can confide in without fear of feeling weak, criticized, or shamed. The silent tears that they shed stem from a multitude of reasons including emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, financial, educational, judicial, racial, and economic hardships. The bottled up hurt and pain they feel eventually spills out in ways that are detrimental to both their wellbeing, as well as, society as a whole.


Silent Tears of Men became the platform to focus on seeking wellness and healing for those affected by tragedy. We understand that there are various pathways towards men’s wellness as defined by the men themselves, not by presumption of their wellness from others. Wellness is defined as the intrinsic values of each individual and the self-reflection of where they are in relation to their goals.


Silent Tears of Men will give voice to their internal struggles, empower them with knowledge, and encourage them to make the courageous steps towards wellness while being wrapped in a relationship of brotherly love standing strong on the foundation of trust, truths and accountability. 

Silent Tears of Men Wellness March

Silent Tears of Men’s first initiative will be a men’s Wellness March on June 27, 2020 from the Virginia State Capital, to Leigh Street, and then down Arthur Ashe Boulevard to the Arthur Ashe Center. There are many historical land marks along this route to educate the marchers each step of the journey. The goal is to have 6,000 men, along with their sons march and attend a wellness event at the Ashe Center.

There will be a kickoff rally at the State Capital with a speaker; at the Ashe Center there will be speakers and resources from faith-based and community organizations that will provide the various pathways to wellness. One primary goal from this event is for all men to understand that we as men are better when we stand together. Eradication of isolation with this march is our first step towards wellness in all areas of our lives.
