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


PRESIDENT OBAMA'S FATHERHOOD AND MENTORING INITIATIVE TO KICK OFF 2012 BARBERSHOP TOUR ON JUNE 16TH

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

Philadelphia, PA
Washington, DC

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

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.
