Million Farther March

The Million Father March is an opportunity for Black men to show their commitment to the educational lives of their children on the first day of school and throughout the school year. Since the March began in 2004, fathers and other significant male caregivers across the country and around the world have been asked to take their children to their first day of school. The Million Father March is the beginning of a year-long commitment of men to their children’s educational success.

  • Please go to your neighborhood school that is identified by your street address and enroll your child at that home school.
