The Real Dads® Network was created to help strengthen fathers and families. It is our belief that children do better, both developmentally and in attainment of life opportunities, when both parents are actively involved in their parenting, regardless of the marital or living circumstances. It is also our belief that healthy, functional black families create stronger communities and a stronger, more resilient society. $110 for Dad/Daughter, 10% discount for Real Dads Members, $45 for each additional daughter.
The Real Dads® Network:
• Recognize and promote positive aspects of fatherhood through all media
• Provide fathers with a support system through connections to resources that empower them to be ‘Real Dads’: present,
providers, protectors and peacemakers
• Collaborate with organizations to create positive outcomes for fathers and their children
• Advocate for shared parenting as the standard for public policy decisions
Create a culture where all fathers are actively involved in the parenting process, and are portrayed and viewed as exemplary role models by society
Derek Phillips, Founder and Executive Director, is passionate about providing a social platform with relevant resources for today’s father to move beyond the crisis-driven perspective often portrayed in the media. The Real Dads® Network is the outgrowth of the award winning documentary “Real Dads – Black Men on Fatherhood”, which includes commentary by the late Ossie Davis and was directed by Derek Phillips and Nikki Dees. A veteran community organizer and fatherhood activist, Derek’s been instrumental in the creation of the Fatherhood Summit, as well as featured on a number of other forums like BET’s “Black Men the Truth.”, 98.7 Kiss FM’s “Open Line”, Rev. Al Sharpton’s “Hour of Power”, etc. At the helm of RDN since its 2004 founding, Derek, an Assistant Principal at Queens Academy High School in NYC, frequently facilitates workshops, conferences and summits to discuss fatherhood empowerment.
