October 2020 Review

October 1st

Virtually attending “THE BLUEPRINT”: REIMAGINING THE NARRATIVE OF THE MODERN BLACK FATHER sponsored by fathers incorporated. Various presenters shared the importance of a Father presence in the household. It is important for the positive well-being of families, neighborhoods, and youth. Dads who actively participate in the lives of their families provide a steady source of stability and support.

Conversation with Brothers Speak: where we stand, where we go from here? Brotherspeak is a community-based study testing the effectiveness of an innovative teen pregnancy prevention intervention for young black men in Philadelphia. The intervention uses elements of theater, music, interactive activities, and open discussion to empower participants to be proactive in protecting their health and well-being. We are inviting community leaders, youth-serving organizations, health educators, and others who are engaged in or passionate about sexual and reproductive health as well as youth development and empowerment to join us for our final event to discuss the work we’ve done, some of the study’s findings, and how to take what we’ve learned to move forward to empower Black adolescents and young adults in Philadelphia.
