It's that time of year again! It's time to start planning your 2016 Million Father March! The Black Star Project provides you with all the tools you need to organize a successful back-to-school event for fathers and other male role models in your community.
When you register yourself or your organization as an organizer, you will receive the following items:
- Our newly revised Organizing Guide will tell you, step by step, how to reach out to fathers in your community, work with your local schools (if you are not a school), get the word out to the press, welcome the fathers to the school, and follow up with fathers to keep them engaged in their children's education for the entire school year.
- Outreach materials in English and Spanish, including a customizable poster and flyer.
- Support emails throughout the summer as your prepare for the first day of school.
- Access to conference calls that will connect you with Black Star Project support staff and organizers and educators nationwide. These are opportunities to ask questions and hear what other schools and organizations are doing to make fathers feel welcome and engaged.
