A multi-partisan commission of many of the nation’s leading experts have created a proposal for a White House Council on Boys and Men. The full proposal is available on the right sidebar with links to each section.

Backstory. This video shows some of our eight coalition members speaking directly to seven presidential candidates in Iowa: Rand Paul, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorona; Scott Walker; Ted Cruz; Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum. Why? To invite them to listen to hundreds of us share our experiences of the boy crisis, fatherlessness and the value of a White House Council on Boys and Men.
You are invited to “Tell the Next President about the Boy Crisis” in July in Des Moines, Iowa.
Who? Boys, parents, educators, mentors, experts, and leaders of programs that help boys
What? An interactive conference tentatively titled: “Today’s Boy Crisis Meets Tomorrow’s President”
How Will the “Interactive” Format Work?:
There are six “interactive” stages:
–Listen: Presidential candidates (both parties) listen to a panel of boys, parents, and experts explain the boy crisis in real-life terms; educators share some of the most successful schools and programs helping boys.
–Dialogue: Candidates question and discuss ideas with panel.
–Speak: Candidates each present their first ideas for solutions and whether they would support a White House Council on Boys and Men to coordinate solutions.
