HOUSE OF UMOJA, INC. ISSUES AN “INTERFAITH CALL TO PRAYER” FOR FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND

            PHILADELPHIA, PA (USA) – 14 June 2017  --  Approximately 1 billion of the 7.5 billion souls with whom we share Planet Earth are Fathers – Single Fathers, Divorced Fathers, Married Fathers, Custodial Fathers, NonCustodial Fathers, and Incarcerated Fathers.  They are Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists and agnostics who speak diverse languages -- French, Urdu, Spanish, English, Portugese, Swahili, Xhosa, Arabic, Gaelic, German, Mandarin, Korean, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Hindi, Bengali, and Punjabi/Lahnda.   The individual and collective sacrifices that One Billion Fathers make for Our Children and their collective wish that Our Children live peaceful, healthy, and long lives transcend the illusionary boundaries of their diverse ethnicities, languages, and religions.  Our Children serve as the common thread which binds together the One Billion Fathers on Planet Earth.  In observance of Father’s Day Weekend commencing Friday, 16 June 2017 and culminating with the worldwide observance of Father’s Day on Sunday, 18 June 2017, the House of Umoja, Inc. is issuing an “Interfaith Call To Prayer”.

            “We are asking clergy and congregations of all denominations and faiths throughout the City of Philadelphia to celebrate and honor Fathers by coming together in prayer – a prayer for peace in our homes, our streets, and our city and a prayer of thanksgiving for the selfless sacrifices and valuable contributions that all Fathers make,” remarked Queen Mother Falaka Fattah, the  Founder of the House of Umoja, Inc.


          The House of Umoja, Inc. (www.houseofumoja.org), an internationally acclaimed  organization was established in 1968 by Queen Mother Falaka Fattah and is credited with positively transforming the lives of at least approximately 3,000 male youths for over four decades in the City of Philadelphia.

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…
