STRIVE’s 3rd Annual “Stand Up for Dads” Charity Event

November 14, 2018 6:00 pm

Location

Social Work Building, 1255 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10027, Room C03

Sponsored by STRIVE International

STRIVE’s annual third annual Stand Up For Dads will be an evening of comedy and cocktails at Carolines on Broadway. The proceeds will support STRIVE’s fatherhood initiatives, a series of programs that help men from low-income communities become responsible, engaged, and financially stable fathers by giving them the skills and support they need to gain employment. The results are striking: children of engaged fathers are more likely to complete school and escape poverty and are less likely to become involved in risky behavior.

At this inspirational evening, faculty member Dr. Ronald B. Mincy (bio) will receive the special STRIVE Influencer Award. He has stood up for low-income dads through his books, his research on fragile families, and his involvement in policy initiatives.
