Oprah Takes Notice: Men's Organizations "Step Up" To Face Our National Crisis

CHICAGO, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --There are important conversations about men, masculinity, and fatherhood happening, and the nation's media and political leaders are taking notice. On January 17 th, 2013, Oprah's Lifeclass will be hosting Jeffery M. Leving, of the Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving, Ltd., as well as the ManKind Project in a special show on fatherless sons.

In 2012, The New York Times reported that a staggering 62 percent of young mothers have never been married, and one in every three children in the United States live without their fathers. 

The incredible pain fatherlessness causes reveals itself in many forms: children who grow up without their fathers are more likely to drop out of school, engage in violent and criminal behavior, and become addicted to drugs and alcohol.

Leading the way to encourage fathers and men of all stripes to "step up" and embrace their important role in society is attorney Jeffery Leving, founder of the Fatherhood Educational Institute and Glenn Barker, Director of the ManKind Project.

Oprah Winfrey invited Leving and Barker to be a part of Oprah's Lifeclass after co-host and spiritual teacher Iyanla VanZant had this moving encounter with a fatherless son: Iyanla VanZant helps a fatherless son heal.

The ManKind Project is a global network of men's groups that offers mentorship programs to men at all stages of life and from all backgrounds. The program empowers men to live lives of emotional authenticity, personal responsibility, leadership, and service in the context of a supportive community. The Project promotes healthy masculinity for mature and modern men in rapidly evolving 21 st century life.

The Fatherhood Educational Institute and The ManKind Project would like to invite your news organization to cover this vitally important subject. In a time when gun violence, sexual violence, and economic disenfranchisement are on people's minds like never before, and when so many children are struggling to find their way in a changing world without the insight and guidance of mature, caring men, America needs good men.

Let's give men and fathers the support and inspiration to be the role models, nurturers and heroes they have the potential to be.
