The Fathers, Men & Boys Action Committee, celebrated International Men’s Day by hosting the 1st Annual Rise Up Summit: Growing Up Male- What Boys, Men, & Fathers Need to Thrive.  This event was the 1st in a series of 5 events which is part of the CSC 20th Anniversary Celebration and we represented well. The highlights of the event were the engaged and dynamic representation from over 120 Broward County Schools students [from South Broward High SchoolStranahan High; Hallandale High; Miramar High; Nova High; Coral Springs High; West Park Prep; AC. Perry Middle Schoolwho asked insightful and profound questions to the panelist. We had a multigenerational cadre of over 20 expert speakers and panelist presenters. Keynote speaker Dr. Alan-Michael Graves presentation was real, raw, authentic, and powerful. The event was also highlighted by a highly engaging and interactive musical performance by Willie Stewart

Thanks to CSC and our Committee Members, Partners & Supporters for making this event possible.  The summit shined the spotlight even brighter on the tremendous work to be done. We invite you to join the committee as we work to positively impact the lives of boys, men & fathers.
