Black Star Project Atlanta/Our Commitment Atlanta

The Black Star Project Atlanta is encouraging fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, cousins, and other significant male caregivers to take their children to school on the first day of school for the 2008-2009 school year. When men are involved in the educational lives of their children, children perform better in school.

Employers are asked to allow fathers and other male caregivers to take off from work for two to three hours (with pay when possible) to accompany their children to school on this first fall day to help get the school year started right. We are also asking all to wear red/white/blue ribbons in recognition of the fathers near and far that can not attend the walk on the 1st day of school.  Fathers and other men should be welcomed guests at their children's school. Some schools will have information and activities available.
