In honor of Father's Day and Juneteenth, Tylenol is celebrating #DadsWithoutLimits by partnering with the Black American Dad Foundation, which provides a vast range of resources to champion the advancement of Black fathers.
Black American Dad Foundation president and executive director Jeremy Givens works tirelessly to provide necessary resources for the enrichment of Black fathers. “It was an idea that I had from college that I wanted to change the narrative and the perception of what Black fathers are and what they represent,” the father of one said while being recognized for his efforts.
The media often misrepresents Black fathers as absentee or emotionally disconnected from parenting. However, the Black American Dad Foundation helps dispel those damaging myths by offering several programs that focus on Black dads’ advancement, including B.A.D. Jobs, a professional development initiative that guides fathers through the employment process; B.A.D. Fit, which helps dads stay healthy; and its newest program, Law Enforcement Connection strives to bridge the gap between police and the Black male community through activities and critical discussions.
Tylenol is proud to support the Black American Dad Foundation’s critical work that not only empowers Black dads but also the larger Black community. BET is excited to help Tylenol amplify the stories of many dads whose care is felt deeply and helps foster an uplifting environment for the people they love.
