Detroit: press conference

Last Thursday afternoon the Detroit event’s press conference took place, the day before the main conference started. The lengthy video is here. I was introduced by Paul Elam, founder and publisher of AVfM, at 1:36:40, and my initial contribution ends at 1:42:35. The lady to my right is Anne Cools, a Canadian Senator, and to her right is Erin Pizzey. Both were very engaging characters, and it was the first time I’d ever met Erin face-to-face. She’s a most remarkable woman who was clearly regarded with awe by speakers and delegates alike. During the Friday night dinner she was presented with a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award by AVfM and – of course – received a standing ovation.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Absolutely fantastic work and all credit goes to you, Mike, for going out of your way to represent UK men like you did. You should feel proud of your individual achievement along with what the rest of the speakers collectively accomplished in Detroit. I feel encouraged that the Nations are finally joining up and collaborating in order to raise awareness of men’s issues. A worthwhile assignment that will go down in history. Well done and enjoy a well-earned rest!
