Who We Are
In 2009 a multi-partisan coalition of many of the nation’s leading experts articulated the depth of the boy crisis, its threat to America’s future, and the need for a White House Council on Boys and Men to address its multiple facets.
In 2019, on Sixty Minutes, Fed Chair Jerome Powell ranked the boy crisis as one of the two biggest threats to America’s economic future.
Dr. Warren Farrell, the chair of the Coalition to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men, explains the boy crisis in this TEDx talk.

Help the Coalition Educate Presidential Candidates in New Hampshire and Iowa
The multi-partisan Coalition to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men (WHCBM) will be working with the National Parents’ Organization (NPO) to discuss with the Democratic and Republican candidates in Iowa and New Hampshire the importance of calling the boy crisis to the nation’s attention, and proposing solutions from equal shared parenting to the creation of a White House Council on Boys and Men.
Since all politicians are concerned with additional government expenditures, the Coalition will explain, as in this video, how the absence of dad creates the presence of government (e.g., how the absence of dad leads to crimes, prisons, ISIS recruits, mass shootings, drug addiction, the opioid crisis, obesity and more than 50 other problems the government spends more than a trillion dollars a year to address).
