The Fathering Circle aims to build fathers' connections with each other to sustain us in more fully engaging with our children, challenging the effects of our limiting socialization as males and better supporting our parenting partners, in particular mothers in their liberation as women.Through listening circles, collaborative arts projects, play dates and family gatherings, we are building a community of fathers, children and families.
