This Affirming Fatherhood Virtual Conference (AFC) is designed to demonstrate the valuable role of fathers and fatherhood to our present and future generations. While fathers are often devalued and portrayed in a negative light, numbers of men are engaged, supportive and loving fathers. Regardless of the path some fathers have taken to fatherhood, their roles as fathers are essential for healthy families, strong communities and a better world. The uniqueness of the Conference centers on reversing the negative view of fatherhood and supporting the important roles that fathers must play in their children’s lives.
The Conference is uniquely designed for a wide-ranging audience:
- Fathers who are bringing their distinctive contributions to the job of parenting their children;
- Staff providing services to fathers/men, often striving to balance dads’ needs and those of other family members the staff serve;
- Policymakers and advocates working to enhance the rights of fathers to be part of their children's lives;
- Anyone interested in advancing the positive results of fathering as supported by current research and practice.
A variety of presenters will provide accurate and insightful information on the importance of fathers and fathering. The men, women, service providers, community leaders and other stakeholders who attend will be elevated, enlightened and equipped to engage fathers as essential parts of children’s lives.
