NCFM Member helps organize first Fathers’ Day Essay Contest sponsored by the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men

Mike Geanoulis, long established National Coalition For Men Member and Founding Commissioner for the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men (CSM) along with other CSM Commissioners, legislators, and interested organizations, like NCFM, recently saved the Commission from being closed by New Hampshire’s Legislature. (see article, “NCFM helps save the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men “) .

Somewhere in the battle to save the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men time was found to offer a Fathers’ Day essay contest, another first reflecting a bit of progress in recognizing the importance of fathers and children.

There are two winners for the essay contest “Why My Dad is Important to Me”. They are Grace V. and Morgan M. (last names withheld). Each of them won $100 for their excellent reasons their fathers are important. The letters are below and are well worth reading.

Governor Lynch will present the awards in his office 3:00 PM Thursday, June 23, 2011. Hopefully with a little fanfare and press exposure I hope, especially since this first ever event will be offer great photo opportunities.

Consider a note of thanks to the Governor for helping to elevate the ordinary importance of fathers for children: http://www4.egov.nh.gov/governor/goveforms/comments.asp

NCFM congratulates Grace, Morgan, Mike, the Commissioners, and Governor Lynch for not just caring about fathers, but celebrating fatherhood.

Harry Crouch

President, NCFM

See NCFM Wayback

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site. However you can see earlier versions and many of the extraordinary accomplishments of NCFM back to 1996 by using the WayBackMachine. In the search box type www.ncfm.org

File a Federal Complaint

If you have specific instances of discrimination against male domestic violence victims by any government-funded DV program anywhere in the U.S., please send all evidence you have to the following federal agencies as a complaint, and state that this violates United States Code, Title 42, Section 3789d(c)(1). Give them as much evidence as you can. They are supposed to investigate it. After several months you may get a letter back saying there is "insufficient evidence" and that they need more information such as dates and times of the discrimination, names of the programs and contact info, names and contact info of witnesses, documents or records, and a detailed chronological narrative. So, re regarding evidence, the more the better. You can send the complaints by email, mail, or both. Send them to: Office of Civil Rights Office of Justice Programs U.S. Department of Justice 810 7th Street, NW Washington, DV 20531 Office of the Inspector General inspector.general@usdoj.gov oig.hotline@usdoj.gov
