At WokeFather.com, we seek to promote organizations and services that are working to lift up anyone who is disenfranchised or disadvantaged, regardless of their race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.
Too many so-called “equality” focused organizations do nothing more than practice exclusionary charitable work, which leaves out entire swaths of the population in need.
- Minority fathers in predominantly black communities facing domestic violence have no place to turn, and usually end up homeless and on the streets. No one cares, and there are no resources for them to turn to.
- Boys from poor families and underserved neighborhoods feel like there’s no one who cares whether they attend college or achieve anything in life. There are no services available to help them like there are for girls.
- Girls who’ve been alienated from their fathers wonder why their father doesn’t care about them, not realizing that a biased child welfare system is at fault.
- Boys and girls lack access to positive male role models, and are inundated every day with a sexist and biased media that portrays negative stereotypes about men and masculinity.
- Countless American male infants have their body autonomy robbed from them through genital mutilation (circumcision), where “consent” – a concept so strongly supported by many of those who condone this practice – is not provided to these boys. Just as bad; courts have recently supported female genital mutilation in the U.S., setting the country back decades in protecting infants from human rights abuses. We support organizations seeking to give back basic human rights to American babies of both genders.
- Men and women across the country face domestic violence. We seek to support organizations that serve domestic violence victims regardless of gender, and that treat victims as victims, regardless of gender.
- Violence against men in the media goes unabated – normalizing the acceptance of violence toward men and deepening the traditional view of male health and male life as less important. We support all organizations that work to close the gender gap in healthcare, mental health, and laws that protect men from violence, as well as the sexist U.S. Selective Service system.
We will feature each and every organization that’s working to reverse these inequalities and discrimination, with links for our readers to support them financially or in any other way. You can find these organizations at the bottom of this page.
A College Scholarship for Boys in Need
Boys are lagging behind in their studies in all grade levels, and fewer are going to college compared to girls. Despite this growing gender gap in education and lack of equality for boys and young men, there remain many orders of magnitude more scholarships for college-bound young women.
We are hoping to help balance the playing field by running an annual scholarship program for underprivileged boys who are entering traditionally female-dominated fields of study. These include:
- Teaching (at any level)
- Sociology or Social Work
- Childcare or Children’s Services
- Nutritionist or Dietition
- Dental Hygienist
- Speech Language Pathologist
- Medical Records & Health Information Technician
- Mental Health Counseling
- Human Resources
- Multicultural or Gender Studies
Balancing the gender gap in these fields will go a long way toward making the services provided by these industries more equitable and more inclusive of men in general. It will bring greater diversity of opinions and progress in these fields, which currently suffer from tremendous bias against men.
Readers can donate any amount they would like to this scholarship fund. Once we reach $1000, we will publish the application form for the scholarship, and will announce the recipient every year. Should the fund grow significantly, we will increase the individual awards and give out multiple every year.

Organizations to Support
You will not find any organizations on this page that support the toxic belief systems supported by feminist ideology, such as sexist “toxic masculinity” ideology or organizations that seek to “help men” further women’s rights. While we support women’s rights – we seek to support all human rights, including those left out by the modern feminist movement. These include minority men, young boys, men who face domestic violence, men discriminated against by family courts and children’s services, and men treated unfairly by a sexist criminal justice system.
This page will grow quite long over time, but the organizations below are an excellent start. We encourage you to support them.
This organization seeks to remedy the recent underachievement among young boys and young men. Programs offered include a Minority Youth Program, a Health Provider Toolkit for adolescent and young adult males, and a National Affinity Network.
This is an important effort to empower disadvantaged boys and young men of color with mentorship and resources. These include programs to advanced voter engagement, improve communities, boost educational opportunities, and to advance the leadership for young men of color across the country.
NCFM has accomplished great things for men over the years, including raising global awareness of the sexist U.S. Selective Service system, and bringing to light many of the sexist stereotypes and discrimination against men in the world today. It is one of the few organizations men can turn to when they’re facing discrimination that unique affects men in the world today.
It is with great sadness when we learned that NCFM Vice President Marc Angelucci (who has spear-headed legal action against Selective Service) was murdered outside his home. However, considering the organization is fighting against a deeply-entrenched system that places little value on male life, we were not surprised. Thankfully, the fight goes on – and it’s one that will be won.
The Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA)
It is beyond question that black men are the single social group in the country that faces two forms of discrimination at once. One, for being a minority and two, for being male. There are far fewer programs, scholarships, and resources for black men than any other social group in the world. That is why the work of CBMA is so important – it seeks to “ensure the growth, sustainability, and impact of leaders and organizations committed to improving the life outcomes of Black men and boys.”
We will never eradicate the traditional view of male health and male life as being less important than others, if we don’t start by eradicating that view toward black men. As men, we stand together in a brotherhood – and must support one another in our common struggles and social challenges as men in a world where it’s socially acceptable to hate us simply because of gender or race.
Much more to come…
