Call for Nominations for Childfree Woman & Man of the Year!
On August 1, 1973, the non-profit organization, National Organization for Non-Parents (NON), celebrated Non-Parents Day by awarding a Female and Male National Non-Parent of the Year. Later known as the National Alliance for Optional Parenthood (NAOP), it existed from 1972-1982 with a mission to “educate the public on non-parenthood as a valid lifestyle option.”
Forty years later….…childfree writers and bloggers Laura Carroll, Marcia Drut-Davis, Eric and Patricia Yvette, Amy and Lance Blackstone think it’s high time to resurrect this “Day,” now calling it International Childfree Day!
Today we’d like to announce August 1st as International Childfree Day, and begin the call for nominations for the 2013 Childfree Woman and Man of the Year!
May this first International Childfree Day be the start of an annual recognition of amazing childfree people and their lives, and serve as a wonderful way to foster the acceptance of the childfree choice in today’s society.
