Fathers are one of the most unlikely of issues for society to appreciate as a cause in need of support. However we continue to express the need to recognize the important role that fathers play in the lives of their children.
National Advisory Council
The need to elevate this notion of responsible fatherhood has never been more important. We want to make a difference. Black Fathers are in need of a societal makeover; this campaign can go a long to accomplish that goal.
FI is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit and is dedicated to strengthening the community and family infrastructure by encouraging and enabling the positive involvement of fathers in the lives of their children.
20 years ago I co-led the organizing effort of the local organizing committee of the Million Man March in Albany, New York. Under the banner of Black Families United we sent hundreds of local supporters to Washington, DC to celebrate Black Men gathering in unity. The march was the catalyst for my own community service career. I elevated my newspaper "WHAZUP", became the VP of Communications for the Urban League of Northeastern New York, became a board member of the NAACP and the YMCA to name a few. The march stimulated my work to uplift my community, work to become a better father for my first child and from the beginning; be the best father I could be for my future children.
Today I run one of the country's premier national responsible fatherhood agencies; Fathers Incorporated. Our work continues to build the capacity of service providers to work primarily with men; Black Men in particular.
