MEN are especially invited to join this conversation–for those who will stand with us, we welcome you. Â Wayward males listen to men.
To the LGBT community: you are invited and welcome to join the conversation. Â You have children too.
The criteria to join in is the same as last year: you are free to write what you wish, as long as you advocate that we ACKNOWLEDGE the problem with 73% of black children born out of wedlock, and you have suggestions for solutions and change.
