“Tradition” tells us that Father’s Day is a day for fathers get a new necktie, a new pair of socks, and a “free” day to play golf. COVID has changed all that.
This year, Fathering Together, The Black Fathers Foundation, and Soy Super Papa will host Father's Friday to show that fathers are #MoreThanANeckTie. Throughout June, we’re changing the narrative from this harmful and incomplete stereotype to one that elevates the diverse work and identities of fathers and the many ways they engage with their families.
Join us June 18th for Father’s Friday. Help us tell the world that dads are #MoreThanANeckTie!
- Tweet, Post, Shout your support with the hashtag #MoreThanANecktie!
- Upload a video of how you have been a caregiver, emotional support, coach, “doctor,” “chef,” and more for your family this past year.
- Join Fathering Together Stand Up Dad’s newsletter for a reminder about our panels that are going live June 18th.
- Donate! We get it. Not every day sees themselves as #MoreThanANecktie, but with your financial contribution, you can provide dads opportunities to gain the skills they need. Through 1 on 1 sessions, group #DadChats, and formal trainings.
All panels are being recorded and will premiere on Fathering Together’s Youtube channel and below with links below as they go live!
Fathering Together, Black Father’s Foundation, and Soy Super Papa thank all of our sponsors and collaborators for their help in amplifying Father’s Friday!
