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. Marie Roker-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.

          For more information about the initiative, please visit “What Kind Of Man Do You Want To Be”  at the following link:  http://whatkindofman.tumblr.com.

How is that individuals from over 70 nations who speak different languages and worship differently are able to “check their egos at the door” and work together with a compassionate spirit to create a better and safer world? Gender Issues Thought Leader, author, poet, humanitarian and faculty member in the History Department at the University of Trinidad and Tobago offers some profound answers through his latest literary work, “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment”.  In 1999, Dr. Teelucksingh stepped out on faith and inaugurated International Men’s Day on 19 November in Trinidad and Tobago.  He selected 19 November as the date for the observance of International Men’s Day because it is his Father’s birthday. 



Dr. Teelucksingh is a man who constantly asks, “What if?”  In 1999, he asked, “What if the invaluable contributions and selfless sacrifices that Men make to our families, our communities, and our world were celebrated on a particular day every year?  What if on this day and throughout the year, we could bring together people from different cultures, religions and nationalities together to make the world a better and safer place by honoring and improving the lives of Men everywhere?  What if we could build bridges of friendship and trust that transcended the boundaries of geography, ethnicity, language, religion, politics, economics, class, and culture?”



“Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” explores how International Men’s Day has become the vehicle for transforming the “What ifs” posed by Dr. Teelucksingh into powerful realities.  “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” is a masterfully crafted literary work penned by the one of the 21st Century’s greatest humanitarian – Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh.  It is powerful tutorial on how one can become a Global Citizen and connects the dots between global citizenship, International Men’s Day, and creating a compassionate, nurturing, and safe environment in communities throughout our global village.



Is it possible to create a world without poverty, injustice, sadness, racism, or pollution?  How do we reconnect the disconnected souls in our families, communities, and our world?  How do we heal broken spirits and shattered souls?  How do we transform spiritually and psychologically toxic communities into an oasis of hope?  Dr. Teelucksingh provides answers in “Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment”.



“Achieving Peace, Equality, And A Healthy Environment” is recommended reading for change agents, social entrepreneurs, educators, religious leaders, legislators, legal professionals, law enforcement professionals, health care professionals and providers, social services professionals and providers, Fatherhood Practitioners, and Men’s Issues advocates.
