FATHERHOOD AND MEN'S ISSUES ADVOCATE BRIAN HALL JOINS USA 2012-2022 INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY TEN YEAR PLAN COMMITTEE



             PHILADELPHIA, PA (USA)29 January 2013 – Fatherhood and  Men’s Issues Advocate Brian Hall is continuing his leadership role for International Men’s Day as the Michigan (USA) Regional Coordinator for 2013 International Men’s Day.  Mr. Hall has also accepted an invitation to become a member of the USA 2012-2022 International Men’s Day Ten Year Plan Committee.  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.  Ms. Twala unveiled a ten-year plan for International Men’s Day on 12 October 2012 which is designed to set annual goals for a ten-year period to reduce the number of key challenges that prevent boys and adolescent young men from maturing into purpose-driven, productive, and successful adults.  The nations of Botswana and the United States are working together to implement this plan in their respective countries.


        Hall’s leadership position in International Men’s Day dates back to 2010 when he first donned the mantle of Michigan (USA) Regional Coordinator and succeeded in having the Governor of Michigan issue a proclamation which recognized and called for a state-wide observance of the worldwide celebration.  In keeping with the 2011 International Men’s Day global theme, “Giving Boys The Best Possible Start In Life,” Mr. Hall orchestrated the State of Michigan’s funding of three (3) boys literacy projects (www.donorschoose.org).  Under Mr. Hall’s leadership, these projects supplied books and reading materials of interest to boys to classrooms in the State of Michigan.  He also created a “Boy’s Literacy Petition” for signature on the “We The People” website (http://wh.gov/487), created by the Administration of The Honorable Barack H. Obama, President of the United States

            Individuals and organizations in the State of Michigan interested in participating in 2013 International Men’s Day, should contact Brian Hall by sending an e-mail to: bhall945@att.net.

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…
