Following up on White House Father’s Day Town Hall, Obama administration continues national conversation on fatherhood and healthy families

WASHINGTON – The White House is scheduled to launch the next phase of its national conversation on responsible fatherhood and strong communities with the first regional Town Hall on the importance of fathers in building healthy families and strong communities. The Town Hall will take place on Wednesday, August 5, 2009 at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The event is cosponsored by the White House Domestic Policy Council’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families. Senior White House and Administration staff will speak at the event, along with local community leaders and experts on fatherhood.

The Town Hall will explore ways in which fathers, community organizations and the government can come together to encourage responsible fatherhood and strong communities, reconnect youth who have fallen away, and strengthen our nation’s families.

This national conversation began on Father’s Day weekend with an event hosted by President Obama at the White House. It will reach communities across the country in the coming months and inform federal policies supporting the development of strong fathers and healthy families.
