La Leche League was founded to give information and encouragement, mainly through personal help, to all mothers and fathers who want to breastfeed their babies. While complementing the care of the physician and other health care professionals, it recognizes the unique importance of one parent helping another to perceive the needs of her child and to learn the best means of fulfilling those needs. LLL believes that breastfeeding, with its many important physical and psychological advantages, is best for baby and mother and is the ideal way to initiate good parent-child relationships. The loving help and support of the father enables the mother to focus on mothering so that together the parents develop close relationships which strengthen the family and thus the whole fabric of society. LLL further believes that mothering through breastfeeding deepens a mother's understanding and acceptance of the responsibilities and rewards of her special role in the family. As a woman grows in mothering she grows as a human being, and every other role she may fill in her lifetime is enriched by the insights and humanity she brings to it from her experiences as a mother. prdept@llli.org or www.lalecheleague.org

No More Rape.org NO MORE strives to be about one cause: to end rape in our society by any ethical means necessary through the methods shown most effective through research and practice. Given this principle, NO MORE will seek to promote the use of "The Men’s Program". In promoting this program, NO MORE will seek to encourage institutions to include "The Men’s Program" among their current rape prevention practices. NO MORE will plan a process whereby other programs are reviewed with an eye toward insuring that we continue to promote those methods shown to be most effective in decreasing rape’s prevalence. If a program other than "The Men’s Program" is found to be more effective, NO MORE will promote its use.

LATRA supports this through the production of music and literature that has arisen from personal experience.

Take some time to look inside the pages of this interactive website. Read the different accounts of adults, children, singles, couples and parents or submit your own story. Children's Forum is dedicated to and developed for the children who have been hurt and affected by their own tragedies. Maybe they have lost a parent or a sibling, suffered from neglect and abuse, or dealing with the pain of their parent's divorce. All of these situations can create emotions that are sometimes overwhelming. They need to tell their stories and share their feelings just as adults do, but they may not believe they have a safe place to express themselves. This part of the site is intended to be a safe place for them to come and share their feelings and stories with other children. If your child has drawn a picture or written a poem or story, or simply made a verbal comment or statement that you would like them to share with others, we hope you will consider sharing it on our site. Their words and their pictures can let another child know they are not alone. The kid's drawings can be seen in the Kid's Art Gallery. Their stories, poems and quotes are located in the Kid's Storybook. These submissions are treasures that should speak to the heart of each and every one of us as they speak the truth about what tragedy does to the hearts and lives of innocent children.

Adult forum is dedicated and developed for adults who have been affected by their own tragedies. Maybe they have lost a parent, spouse or child, have suffered from abuse or are dealing with the pain of divorce or severed relationship. All of these situations can create emotions that are sometimes overwhelming. This section of the site is intended to be a safe place for adults to come and share their feelings and experiences with other adults that may have gone through or are in a similar situation. You are welcome to share and express your feelings with others here at LATRA in the form of written quotes, poems, stories or artwork.

No Stigma: There are many reasons why people do not get help for mental health problems. Fear, Shame and Embarrassment often prevent individuals and their families from doing anything. Mental health problems are real, and they deserve to be treated. It is not a person's fault if he or she has a mental health problem. No one is to blame. Mental health problems are not a sign of weakness. They are something you can't just "snap out of" even if you try. Whether you're male or female, it's OK to ask for help and get it. There's hope. People improve and recover --with the help of treatment, and they are able to enjoy happier and healthier lives. www.nostigma.org

Fathers' Forum: From the pregnancy on, there were very few services both educationally or socially to meet with other men and hear about their experiences as fathers.

The Fathers' Forum is an experiment to help fathers connect with each other and reflect on what it means to become a parent. At the Fathers' Forum the specific focus is on expectant and new fathers.

They are individuals who meet regularly as a group, assisting one another in this new way of life. They have no outside affiliations. Their past is kept in confidence within the group. They don’t thrive on their past, but concentrate on what they want for today and their future. For many of them, the realization of their present condition left them feeling dejected and depressed. They could no longer live life to its fullest. They became disoriented, and their peace of mind was displaced by uncontrollable emotions. They have learned from their group experience that those who come to the meetings on a regular basis, and work the program with diligence, are those who experience spiritual transformation. hcvanonymouse.com and great Hep C Resources

This is International Men's Health Week, part of International Men's Month. We wanted to share what kids in France see on television about condoms. It is somewhat graphic, so if you are extremely sensitive or under 18, be advised. andigraph.free.fr/animation/pageanimationseb/pagepapabite.htm If you like it, tell the producers (gamatboy@aol.com) and tell your congressperson (where to write) that you want to see condom advertising on television in this country - the country with the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world. Relying on parents and the church to provide healthy and appropriate information about sex and assuming kids will abstain hasn't worked. And STDs and AIDS are on the rise again. So, let's try a new approach! Television.

This is International Men's Month (September).

Changing Men Collection at Michigan State University.

This includes materials devoted to father's rights, the National Organization of Men Against Sexism, mytho-poetic groups, and groups representing men's issues from all over the world.

Received materials are first organized and when appropriate cataloged to improve access and research. Since the growth and quality of the CMC depend almost solely on donations, individuals and groups are encouraged to contribute materials. If you or your group wish to make a donation, please contact the Head of Special Collections. All aspects of the men's movements are collected and made available for use. While it was last updated 9/15/00, it provides an emense library of research materials on the various segments of the men's movement for in-library reference and use. www.lib.msu.edu/coll/main/spec_col/radicalism/men/

StopHazing.org In 1992 concerned students and administrators at the University of New Hampshire formed a group called the MJTF (multi-jurisdictional task force) with the sole purpose of passing an anti-hazing law in New Hampshire. In order to educate the NH legislature and public on the topic of hazing, the MJTF prepared books of educational materials, held press conferences, gave lectures and testified at the NH legislature. After a large effort involving students across the state the NH law was successfully passed in 1993. In 1998, two of the original members of the MJTF, Brian Rahill and Elizabeth Allan noticed the lack of hazing information available on the web. They quickly gathered the materials they had developed during the effort to pass the NH law and co-founded the group StopHazing.org with the mission to eliminate hazing through education. The main purpose of StopHazing.org is to serve as a resource for accurate, up-to-date hazing information for students, parents, and educators. StopHazing.org now helps to educate over 30,000 visitors/month. www.stophazing.org or info@stophazing.org MORE EVEN MORE

The Alliance for Children Concerned About Move-Aways (ACCAMA) believes that children’s need for frequent and meaningful contact with both parents after a divorce is paramount. Present efforts by certain members of the California Legislature to attempt to weaken or abrogate altogether the new California Supreme Court’s decision in In re Marriage of LaMusga (2004) run counter to this need. They recognize that there are some situations where custodial parents should be allowed to move, particularly in cases of dire economic need or domestic violence, or when noncustodial parents show little interest in their children or do not avail themselves of their visitation time. What they do oppose are frivolous, selfish, vindictive, or bad faith moves which tear children away from loving noncustodial parents. www.accama.org or contact@accama.org

Campaign to End Homophobia: The purpose of the Campaign is to build and support a network of people working together to end homophobia and heterosexism through education. Homophobia is the irrational fear of homosexuality and the hatred, disgust, and prejudice that fear brings. Oppression of lesbians and gays, as well as bisexual women and men, is based on homophobia. But it also hurts heterosexuals by maintaining rigid definitions of "approporate" sex-role behavior and sexual relationships. We believe that education about homophobia and heterosexism is most effective when done in connection with other oppressions based on race/ethnicity, ability, class, age, sex, gender identification, sexual orientation, and religion or spiritual beliefs. www.endhomophobia.org/

With Kids-In-Mind, the movie reviews are objective, non-critical assessments of the potentially objectionable material contained in movies and are primarily addressed to parents. They don't tell parents whether a movie is good or bad, they don't tell them whether it has any social or political significance -- they don't even bother with whether it has artistic merit. They simply list material that parents may not want their kids to watch or hear. Then parents can decide whether a movie is OK for their own kids, according to their own criteria. The writing style is straightforward and quite neutral, and they take great pains to describe a film's content without actually revealing any plot elements. This is not religiously-based movie reviews. www.kids-in-mind.com or Letters@kids-in-mind.com MORE

platonicparenting.com came about from the belief that sexual compatibility united and strengthened the family unit. However, sexual incompatibility was likely to divide families and create potential for children to experience insecurity and instability.

Our mission, therefore, is to introduce like minded men and women searching for a suitable parenting partner without the sexual commitment. So, platonicparenting.com was established in 1994 as the worlds first and only self help platonic parenting partner information service. The service continues today to run as a self help group, and remains the worlds only dedicated information resource and point of contact for those seeking a compatible platonic parenting partner.
