Pres. Obama's Fatherhood Initiative's Fatherhood Buzz kicks off Barbershop Tour on June 16


WHO: Kenneth Braswell, Director
National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse

WHAT: President Obama's Fatherhood Initiative's Fatherhood Buzz -- a pilot outreach initiative designed to disseminate information about responsible fatherhood and parenting.

Select barbershops in eight cities:

Albany, NY
Atlanta, GA
Chicago, IL
Los Angeles, CA
Milwaukee, WI
New York, NY
Philadelphia, PA
Washington, DC

WHEN: Saturday, June 16, 2012, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

WHERE: See listing of local shops on next page.

WHY: Historically, neighborhood barbershops have served as hubs where men go to discuss issues in the community (family, politics, and health, money and life issues). The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families, Office of Family Assistance, National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse believes that peer education among men is critical in disseminating healthy information about fatherhood and the role of fathers in society. In addition to the select barbershops within this inaugural initiative, community partners and supporters include [see listing of Community Partners below].
