This grant proposal is for Radical Fathers, a multi-tiered, trauma-informed fatherhood program for first-time Black and Latino fathers and prospective fathers to facilitate the development of positive paternal identity in South Los Angeles. The program is inclusive of all male-identified participants and self-identified father figures including step-fathers, adoptive fathers, uncles, and grandfathers. Radical Fathers is rooted in the historical erasure of fathers by considering the policies and legislation that have affected the trajectory of fatherhood. The proposed program incorporates teachings of Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and socioemotional learning to provide parenting education for fathers who have experienced intergenerational father absenteeism. Through a 12-week socioemotional learning group, fathers will be supported in the development of a healthy and inclusive paternal identity with ongoing support groups, case management, and community-building activities; a special focus on civic participation encourages fathers to become involved in local politics to empower themselves and their community.
