Good Fathers Only Organization to March in Labor Day Parade in Celebration of Dads

The celebration of fatherhood will not be relegated to the month of June. Calvin Mann, founder of Good Fathers Only will not let that happen under his watch. He encourages men to remain in their children's lives, no matter the circumstances.

Aug. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- Detroit, MI--  Calvin Mann is on a mission, and that is to empower, support and celebrate father's who do the right thing towards their children and others. Mann created the organization Good Fathers Only, LLC, for this purpose. Its website, http://www.thegoodfathersonly.com serves as a national clearinghouse for resource information specifically targeting fathers. Issues regarding child support, parenting, legal rights and employment can be found there.

This year marks the fourth year of the Good Fathers Only organization participating in Detroit's annual Labor Day Parade. "I've chosen the Labor Day Parade because it represents the very thing that most fathers who are not in the home lack: a job. A lot of men get frustrated with their economic situation, and walk away. Our group wants to discourage this by providing father's with options that include entrepreneurship", states Mann.

Nationwide the statistics are discouraging. Some 25% of U.S. households are single parent households, with the vast majority without the father present. According to the National KIDS COUNT Program, 66% of black children are in single parent households. In the state of Michigan where Mann is based, some 73% of black children are raised in single parent households. "Detroit is ground zero in this movement to get father's reconnected to their children--no matter the situation. I believe that with a continuous effort, Good Fathers Only can and will make a difference", says Mann.

To participate in the Labor Day Parade/Fatherhood Walk, visit the Good Fathers Only website, and do the following:

What: March for Fatherhood
Date: September 3, 2012
Where: Meet at Michigan and Trumbull in front of the old Tiger Stadium, Detroit, MI

Along with other officials marking the occasion,Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the event.
