Fathers Incorporated, 100 Fathers Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Host Fatherhood Rally
On Friday, October 9th New Bethal Baptist Church will open its doors to Fathers Incorporated (FI), 100 Fathers Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity for the “HONORABLE MAN” rally in honor of black fathers the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March.
The Atlanta based not-for-profit, Fathers Incorporated, launched its “Honorable Man Campaign” in August to encourage 20,000 black fathers to sign its pledge. The pledge is designed to provide the principles of being an “honorable man”; in which, these men make great fathers, husbands, mentors and leaders. By gaining 20,000 pledges, this will help to endorse a five-point plan to address: employment and training; health, resources and services, incarceration and child support policy. To-date FI has fathers signed up from over 200 cities representing over 1,000 children.
In times of civil unrest, our communities need ideas and inspiration; hence, this campaign was developed to change the perception of how society currently views our black men—specifically our fathers.
This rally will give the community an opportunity to interact with panelist, keynote speakers and gather in unison before the Million Man March.
