Holder joins in effort to help men be better fathers
Attorney General Eric Holder, D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) and a host of law enforcement and community leaders gathered today at the University of the District of Columbia in an effort to help men of the city become better fathers.
"A father's role in the life of a child is irreplaceable," said Holder during the keynote address opening "A National Roundtable and Town Hall Meeting on Fatherhood" that was sponsored by the Alliance of Concerned Men. "If we are going to call ourselves men then we must act like men."
"There is no work of greater importance than the subject of fatherhood and youth violence. Somebody has got to step up and be the example. Where is the leadership?" said Norton.
