The Mission of the National Congress For Fathers and Children is to serve as a national organization, to assist state and local efforts, compatible with our goal of assisting parents who desire to remain actively involved in the lives of their children, regardless of marital status.

We encourage active parental involvement, including emotional and financial support by both parents.

The National Congress For Fathers and Children has, from its creation, fully supported the Equal Rights Amendment and urges it application to men as well as women. We believe that courts should focus solely on the best interest of the child. Moreover, we assert that the best interest of children demands that custody be eliminated as an issue in divorce, and that the parent child relationship be severed only by a constitutionally sound proceeding, requiring clear and convincing evidence of child abuse or neglect.

    Wide Sky Men's Council
    (Los Angeles area)
    .

    UNITY, DIVERSITY, INDIVIDUALITY We hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people, that each should stand guard over the solitude of each otherÖ once the realization is accepted that even between the closest Human Beings infinite distance continues to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a Wide Sky. A place where the absolute unique expression of life that individual men are, would be acknowledged, listened to, recognized, empowered and most of all appreciated. In the safety of a ritualized container, bounded by honor, integrity and compassion, the wild and woolly raw energy of maleness via drumming, dancing and story telling opens the door to authentic, heart felt expression. The safety of the container allows for the full recognition and appreciation of our shadow side. Without even a hint of judgment or evaluation. The depths of love, rage, tenderness, humor, hurt and caring are allowed full expression.
