Randy Burton, Esq.

“At our recent winter meeting, the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS) passed a resolution in support of protective mothers.  We are asking other men's organizations to join us so that we can challenge the male supremacist groups and particularly their claim to represent all men and fathers.  Already A Call to Men has agreed to support our resolution.  If anyone knows of other men's organizations that might be interested, please forward the resolution below or they can find it at NOMAS.org.”
