hunter million father marchWCHICAGO – State Senator Mattie Hunter (D - Chicago) joined fathers from around Chicago today for the annual Million Father March, hosted by the Black Star Project. This annual event promotes black male involvement in the educational careers of their children.

“Black men are overwhelmingly incarcerated and scores of black families throughout our nation are fatherless,” Hunter said. “Our children need to see black men supporting the community, helping our youth achieve academic success and show how much education means to the growth and development of our community.”

“Fathers play an important role in their children’s educational success,” Hunter continued. “The Million Father March shows the education system that black men aren’t going to stand by and feed into statistics and stereotypes but rather be involved in their children’s lives so they can continue closing the achievement gap.”

"I have worked tirelessly to create a state financing program that will level the playing field for all businesses by providing working capital to contractors who are shut out by the banks but, are qualified to successfully complete state construction projects," Hunter said. "A subcontractor's inability to attain lines of credit severely hinders them from attaining bonding or becoming prime contractors. This legislation works to eliminate one of the major barriers to meeting those goals."
