Well, after a remarkable conference in Detroit, things are finally returning to normal. It was such a pleasure – and, more importantly, so useful – to meet many prominent men’s human rights advocates for the first time including Paul Elam, Dean Esmay, Sage Gerard, Jack Barnes, Karen Straughan, Alison Tieman, Janet Bloomfield, Attila Vinczer, Dan Perrins… and many others including, of course, Erin Pizzey, who was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. It was good to have a number of J4MB supporters along too, and we look forward to next year’s event, which will doubtless be even better and bigger.
With about 10 months remaining before next May’s general election, we are now focusing again on our campaigns in Bedford & Kempston, where I’ll be standing, and in Wolverhampton South-West, where Ray Barry – leader of the Equal Parenting Alliance and Real Fathers for Justice – will be standing. We plan to carry out some activities after the summer holidays are over, and the scale of those activities will depend on the money we have available at the time. It’s been some time since we last appealed for donations, but I now need to in order to cover the costs of those activities. You already know, I hope, that not one penny will go into the pockets of anyone associated with J4MB. We have an accountant who’s very careful with party funds, so you can be sure your money will be put to very good use.
If you feel able to make a donation, however small or large, you may do so here. Thank you for your support.
