WHY A RESPONSIBLE FATHERHOOD RALLY?
In honor of the 100 Year Anniversary of Father’s Day holiday in America, NPCL and other partner organizations have set out to make history. The plight of Fatherhood in America is at an all-time low, and millions of children across the country are suffering from shallow or non-existing relationships with their Fathers. On June 20th, 2009, Father’s across the country will take a stand together for the future parents of America: OUR KIDS.
This June, Father’s across the nation will convene at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC prepared to take an oath of dedication to their children and families to be RESPONSIBLE. In the words of Fatherhood expert, Dr. Jeffery M. Johnson, “When you are a Father, you are a Father for LIFE.” Transcending stereotypes, past mistakes and present fears, NPCL, Guest Speakers and Dad’s across the nation strive to encourage responsible fatherhood throughout the U.S. in a powerful and unforgettable way!
