FATHERHOOD

BLACK

WHY BLACK FATHERHOOD?

We need to eliminate the exclusion of fathers as secondary parents. We must provide a safe space for black men to be vulnerable, share experiences and gain knowledge and awareness on the impact of their presence, support, and voice in the family dynamic.

DID YOU KNOW?

Black babies face double the risk of dying before their first birthday. During 2016- 2018, California had the highest infant mortality rate for black infants and continue to have the highest rate to date. We must focus on improving birth outcomes and reduce black infant mortality.

LEGACY OF FATHERHOOD

A relationship with dad can change a child's life. Fathers play an important role in a child's healthy development. Join today to connect with other fathers as we learn how to raise strong black children together while exploring, uplifting, and celebrating the legacy of Black Fatherhood.
