Attorney Jeffery M. Leving Inspires Community Leaders at Fatherhood Symposium!

On Dec. 19, the Illinois Council on Responsible Fatherhood held its free annual fatherhood symposium at the Oak Park Library in Oak Park, IL, moderated by ICRF Chairman and Attorney Jeffery M. Leving. The symposium empowered single fathers and provided community leaders and ministers survival strategies to take home. Positive paternal involvement has been shown to improve academic test scores, reduce teenage pregnancy, and encourage confidence in children.

“The ICRF is here to provide a solution to father absence by promoting positive father involvement and contributing resources to support all dads in all communities,” said Chairman Leving. “Justice should not be a luxury only the rich can afford.”

The symposium presented professionals who spoke on a wide range of critical fatherhood-related topics focused on keeping children safe. Attorney Leving and ICRF council members want to ensure that fathers are provided the essential support and parenting tools to assume the important role they play in their children’s lives.
