Xmas is almost upon us, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our followers for their support of J4MB over the last 10 months. Public interest in our arguments – as reflected in the number of ‘hits’ on this website – has been growing strongly month by month. We’ve worked hard to expose the many assaults on the interests of men and boys, and to develop forward practical proposals to improve their lives (and in turn the lives of women and girls). With just 500 days remaining before the 2015 general election, you can be sure we’ll be working even harder next year.
One thing above all would do a great deal to increase public awareness of our arguments, and that’s exposure in the mainstream media. At the moment the single thing which would do most to give J4MB exposure in the mainstream media would be an appearance at the first international conference on men’s issues, in Detroit, in late June.
I’ve been invited to speak at the event, and my presentation will be video recorded along with other presentations. We recently started an appeal to raise £1,000 to cover the cost of flights – ‘A Voice for Men’, the organisers of the conference, will be covering other costs. We’ve had a number of donations, but we’re still some way from hitting the target. As things stand I won’t be going to Detroit, and a golden opportunity for exposure in the mainstream media will be missed. So I ask you again to donate what you can afford, even if it’s £1.
