According to the U.S. Census Bureau, men living in poverty are twice as likely to become absent fathers than their middle-class peers, and one in three children in the United States is living without a father present.
On Tuesday, October 25th, 5:30 pm at Central Library, join WFYI and OpportunIndy for a screening of the film Daddy Don’t Go, followed by a moderated conversation. Daddy Don’t Go is a touching documentary that chronicles the everyday struggles of four economically disadvantaged men’s journeys to be strong father figures in the lives of children.
Following the film, join in a conversation moderated by Dr. Michael Twyman, Executive Director ofOpportunIndy, about systemic barriers that often stand in the way of fathers being both present and active in the lives of their children and families, and explore ways the broader community can be supportive of their roles and involvement as men and parents.
This event is free and open to the public. Friends and coworkers are welcome.
