ODETTA WRIGHT, VIRGINIA (USA) REGIONAL COORDINATOR CONTINUES LEADERSHIP ROLE FOR 2013 INTERNATIONAL MEN’S DAY 

 RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (USA)28 JANUARY 2013 -- Actress, playwright, film producer, Co-Founder of Father Figure Enterprises, LLC (www.fatherfigure.org), Virginia (USA) Regional Coordinator for International Men’s Day, and Member of the USA 2012-2022 International Men’s Day Ten Year Plan Committee, MRS. ODETTA WRIGHT, will continue her leadership role in the global observance as the 2013 International Men’s Day Virginia (USA) Regional Coordinator. 

Mrs. Wright’s leadership role in 2012 International Men’s Day resulted in the development of a collaboration between the United States of America and Botswana by helping Ms. GENEUVIVE TWALA, the Botswana Coordinator for 2012 International Men’s Day, launch the “Men of Tomorrow” Rites of Passage Mentoring Program in Botswana on 19 November 2012. The “Men of Tomorrow” Rites of Passage Mentoring program was launched in the United States on 2011 International Men’s Day – 19 November 2011 as a result of a partnership between Mrs. Wright and the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church (www.ndec.net) in Richmond, Virginia. The “Men of Tomorrow” Rites of Passage Mentoring Program was created by BISHOP GERALD GLENN of the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church and Elder Thomas Powell serves as the program’s Coordinator.

 WRIGHT is a Founding Member of the USA 2012-2022: International Men’s Day Ten Year Plan Committee which was created in October 2012. The 2012-2022 International Men’s Day Ten Year Plan is the brainchild of MS. GENEUVIVE TWALA, the Botswana Coordinator for International Men’s Day and is, among other things, setting goals annually for a ten-year period to reduce the school drop out rate among boys and young adolescent males; violence; and the number of single family households that are struggling for survival; and to increase real-life options for boys and young adolescent males. This Plan has been adopted by the United States. Botswana and the United States will work together over the next 10 years to resolve the key challenges that prevent boys and young adolescent males from maturing into purpose-driven, productive and successful adults in our global village.

 Individuals and organizations throughout Virginia that are interested in raising awareness for and participating in 2013 International Men’s Day, can contact Mrs. Odetta Wright, the 2013 International Men’s Day Coordinator by sending an e-mail to: odetta_wright@yahoo.com.

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.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
