Pre-Father’s Day Virtual Media Conference on June 4, 2014 from 1 pm to 2 pm Pacific time, onlinehttp://www.newswise.com

Jason Patric, the actor and activist, who is fighting to be an equal parent, will join three nationally known parenting experts in a virtual media conference Wednesday, June 4, the week leading up to Father’s Day.

This online event comes at a time when 53% of women under 30 who have children are not married*. That statistic predicts a generation of children with little or no father involvement – a potential threat to society and a troubling development for America’s children.

MEDIA EVENT WILL FEATURE:

* Jason Patric – actor, activist, and founder of Stand Up for Gus

* Dr. Warren Farrell — author of Father and Child Reunion

* Georgialee Lang — Leading Women for Shared Parenting

* Dr. Ned Holstein – founder and chair of the National Parents Organization

Among issues the four speakers will explore:

* Why aren’t more fathers more involved with raising young children – and where have all the fathers gone?

* What are the implications for America’s future?

* Are there larger issues involved in Stand Up for Gus and Jason Patric’s battle for co-custody of his son? Or is this just about cases of in vitro fertilization?

* How are women becoming a political force for the equal involvement of both parents?

*What role do family courts play in keeping fathers apart from their children

Issues and story angles the presenters will discuss during the online media conference:

–Jason Patric, actor, activist and founder of Stand Up For Gus; http://www.standupforgus.com
— Why he’s fighting for Gus and all the kids who are being deprived of their dad;
