Help Us Help Others, Fall Fundraiser Appeal by NCFM Carolinas
The National Coalition For Men Carolinas (NCFMC) is dedicated to ending harmful discrimination of men and boys. We recognize that asking people to part with their hard earned money in order to support a cause is never an easy thing. Yet here we are asking our friends to make a donation to support the work we do to advance human rights, gender equality and equal protection.
Those of you who have followed the discussion on campus sexual assault have likely witnessed or experienced firsthand the hostility toward men on college campuses. Over 300 articles have been written over the past year decrying the unfair, biased treatment of male students facing college campus kangaroo sex courts.The cry for justice and fair treatment has never been louder.
The school’s interest is not in being fair but rather in ensuring that the school protects itself. Truth matters little in such an environment of self-preservation. That is why NCFMC is focused on changing discriminatory practices prevalent at post-secondary institutions in their handling of sexual assault allegations with accused students, where guilt is often assumed and banishment a foregone conclusion.
How are donated funds spent? Perhaps the easiest way to answer that question is by reviewing the accomplishments of this past year. Some of the highlights:
Launched the NCFM Carolinas website, a trusted portal with comprehensive information and resources related to timely men’s issues.
Launched NCFMC social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
Provided invited testimony to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee hearing on campus sexual assault stressing the need for adequate due process protection for university students.
Co-developed the highly-respected Database of Lawsuits Against Colleges and Universities Alleging Due Process and Other Violations in Adjudicating Sexual Assault.
Educated Congressional staffers on the rising number of families destroyed by false allegations of sexual misconduct occurring on college and university campuses and the desperate need to hear all sides to the complex issue of addressing campus sexual assault.
Helped launch (as a founding member) the Campus Justice Coalition. The mission of the Campus Justice Coalition is to restore justice to the handling of sexual assault cases by balancing the interests of the identified victim, the accused, future victims, and of universities.
Alerted students to the high-risk environment at UNC-Chapel Hill created by the harmful new sex policy that UNC instituted this year that puts the university squarely in the bedroom of students and greatly increases the risk of students being falsely accused of sexual misconduct.
Distributed literature during Parents Weekend at UNC informing parents and students that UNC students have less due process rights available to them an average K-12 student.
Launched The Sojourner an on-line forum for families still suffering from the pain and suffering associated with a family member falsely accused of sexual misconduct that resulted in removal from university.
Beat back the fatally flawed, discriminatory Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA) which denied due process and presumed an accused student guilty until proven innocent.
Developed educational materials alerting the public as to how affirmative consent sex policies turn consensual sex into a punishable offense that can result in college expulsion.
Launched the highly-valued legal resource known as the PRO-DUE PROCESS ATTORNEY LIST which contains the names of attorneys that work on cases of students accused of sexual misconduct and who share the belief that universities MUST provide fair, unbiased, and equitable procedures when determining a person’s guilt or innocence.
Your financial support is greatly appreciated and supports the work we do to combat gender discrimination, injustice and ignorance. Please consider helping us restore justice, equality and safety to our nation’s college communities. Thank you.
