NATIONAL COALITION FOR MEN KICKS OFF AMERICA'S
CELEBRATION OF 2012 INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (USA) – 12 November 2012 -- Founded in 1977, the National Coalition for Men (www.ncfm.org) is the oldest and one of the most proactive and largest Men's Issues organization in the United States, For 35 years, the National Coalition for Men (“NCFM”) has effectively and tirelessly addressed issues affecting Men that include, but are not limited to, men's health, male domestic violence victims, homelessness, and Fatherhood.

NCFM will kick off the United States' celebration of 2012 International Men's Day (www.international-mens-day.com) and what is being heralded as “International Men's Day Weekend” on Friday, 16 November 2012 with an event organized by NCFM Vice President Marc Angelucci in partnership with the Fraternal Brotherhood of Eagles. America's “kick off” event for 2012 International Men's Day will be held at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles in Eagle Rock, California on Friday, 16 November 2012 beginning at 7:00 P.M. (P.D.T.).

The National Coalition For Men has been a staunch advocate for Men's Health issues for 35 years and has helped to educate America and the world about the unique parenting and health issues that Men have. It continues to move America and the world to examine how it can effectively and aggressively address Men's Health issues and how it can and must give boys 'the best possible start in life.' It is only fitting that this organization is 'kicking off' America's celebration of 2012 International Men's Day which is being observed under the theme, 'Helping Men and Boys Live Longer, Happier, Healthier Lives'. The National Coalition for Men is one of the 'unsung heroes' of the Global Fatherhood and Men's Issues Movement,” remarked Diane A. Sears, the United States Coordinator for International Men's Day.

Inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago by Jerome Teelucksingh, Ph.D., a faculty member in the History Department of the University of West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, International Men's Day shares a 48-hour partnership with Universal Children's Day which is observed worldwide on 20th November of each year and is endorsed by the United Nations. Over 60 nations throughout our global village will observe 2012 International Men's Day under the theme, “Helping Men and Boys Live Longer, Happier, Healthier Lives.”

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
