and Fred Hammond to lead the effort of the "Ties Never Broken" Blue Bow
Tie Campaign --
New York, NY ( -- Inspired by
President Barack Obama's 2010 Father's Day address, Fathers Incorporated
(FI) has launched its Ties Never Broken campaign. Fathers Incorporated,
a not-for-profit organization in New York is committed to eliminating
fatherlessness and increasing the commitment of men to become mentors.
Over the last several months, the campaign has garnered international
attention and is supported by The White House and several major urban
cities. The Ties Never Broken campaign is symbolized by the social
marketing icon of a "blue bow tie."
New to the team in championing
the mission of responsible fatherhood is Fred Hammond, Grammy Award and
multiple award-winning performer, producer and writer. Hammond joins
fellow co-spokesperson Chris Broussard, journalist and sports analyst
for ESPN. "I am excited to serve in this honorable capacity of saving
our children," states Hammond. "I've spent my life striving to be a
responsible father and man, and I find it unacceptable what's happening

"For years, FI has been working in the field of responsible
fatherhood, with the goal of creating effective service models to serve
men," says Kenneth Braswell, executive director of Fathers Incorporated.
"Our biggest struggle in combating both father absence and the lack of

conciseness regarding the importance of responsible male involvement."
is our hope to garner the support of other influential men in sports,
entertainment, business and in our faith-based communities to champion
our efforts. Particularly those who have played impactful fatherhood
roles in television and screen, as well as those who have a passion for
elevating the image of responsible fatherhood and family values," adds
co-spokesperson, Chris Broussard.
