REFRAME: Centering the Strength of Black Voices in Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Programs

The Race Equity for Fatherhood, Relationship, and Marriage Programs to Empower Black Families (REFRAME) project seeks to understand the strengths, needs, and experiences of Black individuals and couples to inform the development of practice resources that promote equitable service delivery among Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood (HMRF) programs. REFRAME is engaging with an Expert Workgroup (EWG) in authentic conversations to identify and learn about program needs, participant experiences, community contexts, and existing efforts to advance race equity in HMRF programs and in communities. This brief describes the purpose of the EWG, early learnings from project activities, key considerations being taken to integrate an equity approach throughout the project, and next stages of the work.
