RAISING GREAT MEN (TM) ISSUES "CALL TO ACTION TO WOMEN" TO SUPPORT BOYS AND MEN'S EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL WELL-BEING IN OBSERVANCE OF 2013 INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY
NEW YORK, NY (USA) – 16 October 2013 – In observance of 2013 International Men’s Day which will be celebrated in over 70 nations throughout our global village under the theme, “Keeping Men And Boys Safe”, Raising Great Men™ has issued a “Call To Action To Women” to support the emotional and mental well-being of the boys and men in their lives.
The emotional and mental health of boys and men has been identified by the International Men’s Day Global Team as one of the challenges to keeping them safe. The “Call To Action” for Women launched by Raising Great Men™ under the leadership of its founder, Ms. MarieRoker-Jones represents the first tier of a two-tiered initiative launched in observance of 2013 International Men’s Day.
The announcement of the launch of a “Call To Action To Women” to support boys and men’s emotional well being comes on the heels of the announcement by Raising Great Men ™ of its hosting a “safe space” for men on 2013 International Men’s Day – the second tier o the two-tiered initiative designed by the New York City-based organization. This online space will provide men, particularly fathers with an opportunity to address how they want to be role models for the next generation of men.
We also want these men to talk about the support they need from the women in their lives to be healthy, whole men.

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.
