Over a hundred men and children came together to walk for a worthy cause last weekend, as the #NoDadLeftBehind “March of Dads Tour” made its fourth stop in Atlanta.

The team joined The Dad Gang, in partnership with Walmart, to continue its mission to amplify Black fatherhood, as a means of empowering and uniting active Black men, while debunking “negative stereotypes” attached to Black fathers.

This is the fourth stop along the March of Dads Tour since June, with hundreds of dads who have already joined, making headlines and shutting down the streets of New York, Los Angeles (LA), and Washington DC.

New York Councilman Kevin Riley, who is also a founding member acknowledged that this is where the solo journey of fatherhood is transformed into a brotherhood.

What we’re doing with this movement is creating a positive ecosystem for Black fatherhood,” he said.

The March of Dads is a public demonstration that was initiated by The Dad Gang in 2018, to unite active dads of color across the nation for a day of bonding and community building, by showing the world meaningful examples of what dedicated Black fatherhood really looks like.
