The Second Annual International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys is a call for peace; it is a call for bringing hope to the hopeless. It is the beginning of a journey for individuals of all faiths and denominations -- Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, and Buddhists – a journey of collaboration to end Fatherlessness, gender wars, homelessness, intolerance, poverty, hunger, and violence It is a call for transforming our spiritually, psychologically and emotionally toxic communities into a loving, nurturing, and spiritually vibrant oasis. It is a call to end the “school-to-prison” pipeline. It is a call to end the rising suicide rate of Men and Boys. It is a call to end the violence that plagues our communities and prematurely snuffs out the lives of Men and Boys. It is a call to provide Boys and Men with real-life options. It is a call to bring spiritual, emotional, and psychological healing to our families, our communities, and our global village. It is a call for understanding – an understanding that each of the 7.3 billion souls who occupy this space and place we know as Planet Earth are connected to one another. And an understanding that we all live in grave peril if we are not working to keep Men and Boys safe and helping them to live happier, longer, and healthier lives.

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…
