State-Hosted Annual Fatherhood Symposium Explores the Importance of Fathers in Raising Children
Through the annual fatherhood symposium, educational programming and advocacy, The Illinois Council on Responsible Fatherhood promotes the positive involvement of both parents in the lives of their children.
“Fathers need to understand how critical their role is in parenting for their children to be successful and productive members of our society,” said Attorney Jeffery M. Leving, the Governor-appointed chairman of the ICRF.
“The symposium will help fathers and the public at-large better understand why paternal involvement is important.”
The symposium is open to the public. Our speakers come from all fields – from U.S. Representatives to ministers, attorneys to former NFL players – all wishing to help build a positive future for our children through promoting responsible fatherhood in Illinois.
