Martin participated in the Boy Crisis Conference in Washington DC

Martin participated in the Boys and the Boy Crisis Conference July 13-14, 2007 in Washington D.C. With his new book "Finding Our Fire" in hand, Martin gained a greater understanding of the connection to the important work of The Men's Inquiry and how that supports providing positive role models for boys - as well as the importance of supporting positive role models of fathers. Martin also had the opportunity to reconnect to his mentor and friend Dr. Warren Farrell. The picture is of Martin and his father with Warren Farrell.

Topics covered:

What is the Boy Crisis?
Is there a level playing field for boys?
What helps boys in schools and what can be done?
Is there a War Against Boys?
What role does fatherhood play?
How does divorce and fatherlessness impact boys?
