Jack Kammer Program Support Consultant
p: 240.912.1280 f: 301-948-4325 jkammer@fatherhood.org
Jack joined NFI's Program Support Team in 2012, with a background in Social Work and Corrections. Previously, in 1983 Jack started a weekly radio show called "In a Man's Shoes" at a station near Baltimore. Originally, it was mostly about communication and fairness between men and women, with an eye on romance and relationships. But it didn't take long for Jack to realize that serious, even life-and-death social issues were involved in what was really going on in men's lives. Fatherhood emerged as a central issue; articulating and advocating the critical importance of fatherhood for healthy communities became Jack's passion.
In 2005 Jack left his day job as an IT analyst and trainer in Washington DC to go back to school in a three-year MBA/MSW program at the University of Maryland. Subsequently he spent a year as a Correctional Officer in the Baltimore City Detention Center and another year as a Parole & Probation Agent in central Baltimore. What he saw and heard in those two jobs confirmed the connection between male gender issues - especially the problems facing fatherhood in our culture - and problems of crime, violence, educational underachievement, unemployment, substance abuse, mental illness, suicide and others. His focus at NFI will be on fatherhood programming opportunities primarily in DC, Maryland and Virginia, but he will also support and lead efforts nationally to expand NFI's work in the Corrections field.
Constitution Party State Parties

Guest speaker: Jack Kammer will discuss "Daddy's Home: How the Constitution Party Can Give America What it Wants and Needs" The past fifty years have seen a revolution in conceptions of gender. That's been good, but it's also been bad. It's good that women are now seen as strong and capable. It's bad that men are now seen as inept and corrupt. Healthy societies require healthy interactions between men and women. At our meeting on November 5, Jack Kammer will talk with us about healthy male values and how to Re-establish their rightful place in the body politic. Jack started a radio show about men in 1983. It didn't take long for him to realize that serious social problems are closely connected to what is really going on with men and boys, as opposed to the simplistic (and sexist) notion that "it's a man's world." He went on to be the executive director of a national organization whose mission was "to preserve the promise of fatherhood," and to write three books on men and boys. (See www.healthyvillagepress.com) He has also done stand-up comedy about how life can really be for men. In 2005 he left his day job as an IT administrator and went back to school for Masters Degrees in Business and Social Work. His specialty is working to have social work come to grips with anti-male sentiment in its ranks. He works now as a Parole and Probation Agent in Maryland (though his talk is in no way connected with his official capacity). Right before that he was a Correctional Officer (AKA prison guard) at the Baltimore City Detention Center.
