MONROVIA, LIBERIA – 5 JULY 2013 - Liberian native Lisa D. Houston is the Founder and President of Blameless Faces Foundation, Inc. (www.blamelessfacesfoundation.com), a charitable humanitarian organization designed to reduce poverty, promote educational opportunities for children, and create the Next Generation of Leaders throughout our global village. Ms. Houston has been tapped as the Liberia Coordinator for 2013 International Men's Day and will be the point of contact for Liberians and Liberian organizations and institutions wishing to participate in 2013 International Men's Day. International Men's Day will be observed in over 70 nations on Tuesday, 19 November 2013 under the theme, “Keeping Men and Boys Safe”. It celebrates and honors the contributions and selfless sacrifices that Men make everyday to our families, our communities, and our world. Inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago by Gender Issues Thought Leader and faculty member in the History Department of the University of West Indies at Trinidad and Tobago Jerome Teelucksingh, Ph.D., 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.


The human devastation visited upon Liberia and the total destruction of its infrastructure as a result of two civil wars moved me to work to bring healing to the country where I was born and spent my childhood . . . to help to reduce poverty, create educational opportunities for its children through the establishment of Learning Centers, eradicate violence, child-trafficking, abuse, and literacy, and to mentor the Next Generation of Leaders through the Blameless Faces Foundation, Inc. Coordinators for 2013 International Men's Day are helping to move the world to focus on how it can, among other things, create and improve educational opportunities for boys and young adolescent males, resolve mental and physical health issues for boys and men, and eradicate violence. There is symmetry between the work that I am doing through Blameless Faces Foundation, Inc. and the mission of International Men's Day. I look forward to serving as the Liberia Coordinator for 2013 International Men's Day,” remarked Ms. Houston.

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…
