Fatherhood Buzz

Neighborhood barbershops are a trusted space to discuss personal and public issues, ranging from family to politics, health, money, and other life issues.  Fatherhood Buzz is an effort to increase awareness around responsible fatherhood and parenting issues, and increase families access to support through local barbershops throughout the country.  Fatherhood Buzz events take place up to four times throughout the year, typically on Saturdays.
