The Million Father March 2013 is taking place across the country, including Wednesday morning in Omaha, as fathers are encouraged to walk their children to class on the first day of school.
Former Husker great Johnny Rodgers was scheduled to host the event at Mt. View Elementary School.
The Million Father March is intended to provide an escort of safety, support and encouragement to children of all ages. "Gang recruitment, bullying and random violence goes way down on any day that a group of men are at a school," said Phillip Jackson, executive director of Black Star Project USA, sponsor of the march.
