Conversation around the relevance of both Fatherhood and Brotherhood
The campaign, “Fatherhood Is Brotherhood” helps to elevate the conversation around the relevance of both Fatherhood and Brotherhood and includes mentorship by well-known brand ambassadors such as rap artist T-Mo (Goodie Mob), GRIFF co-host of Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell, NBA sports analyst and media personality Chris Broussard, former Falcons, NFL Running Back, Warrick Dunn as well as Sheriff Patrick Labat of the Fulton County Sheriff Department.
The official launch is set for February 12th that will welcome a freshman cohort of fathers into a “brotherhood” of support, networking and elevation.
