#BecauseWeAreFathers: a celebration of fatherhood

Beginning Monday, June 15, 2020, fathers and their families are invited to show the world how their family is staying strong through COVID-19 by participating in the DeKalb County Solicitor-General and Men Stopping Violence’s #BecauseWeAreFathers challenge.

The week-long Father’s Day celebration features daily activities for families to do and post along with the hashtag #BecauseWeAreFathers to their personal social media channels. In addition to the virtual activities, MSV will host two special editions of The Huddle. The Huddle is a bi-weekly zoom call that gives men an outlet to discuss what’s been going on in their world. Each Huddle features a community leader who shares their personal take and insights on our current situation while providing tips for coping during a crisis. On Wednesday, June 17, at 6:30 p.m., David Manuel, Founder of IAmAFather 5-K, will kick off a conversation about the importance of self-care for fathers. At noon on Friday, June 19, join Nathaniel Jones, author of Ten Steps to Raising Black Boys, in a conversation about raising a Black son in America.
