Together we can end hate and help heal the world.
The Men’s Advocacy Club (MAC) is an organization developed within the non-profit charity organization, Women’s Advocacy Club (WAC). More specifically, MAC was founded in 2018 in Glendale, California with Dr. Lena S.K. Magardechian (also the co-founder of WAC) and her brother, Mr. Leo K. Magardechian. The need for this club was due to the lack of support, advocacy, encouragement, and prevalence of men’s issues in society. Which in turn all these issues impact the man’s mental health. Therefore,the Magardechian siblings then started brainstorming what could be done at a global level to bring gender awareness to HEAL men (i.e., including mental health, physical health, emotional health, financial health, etc) and this is why MAC was created.
MAC aims to support all work that has made an impact in our world and hope to come together to fight the issues of mental health that prevail in our lives today. We focus on educating women, men, boys, and girls from all backgrounds so that we can then turn our attention to cultural, social and relational issues that are important to everyone’s well being. We also want to set straight that it is time to amplify marginalized voices so that they are heard and seen.
As our global charity organization continues to grow, we hope to connect with more like-minded people to raise importance to gender, mental health, and social justice issues. We envision and push forth the agenda that gender-related topics will be more openly and comfortably addressed in regular daily conversations in order to diminish stigma, prejudice, bullying, stereotyping, harassment, and taboo.
