Our community barber and beauty institutions are a trusted space to discuss personal and public issues, ranging from family to politics, health, money, and other life issues. "The Buzz", also referred to as, GoodDaddies Fatherhood Buzz, is an effort to increase awareness around responsible fatherhood and parenting issues, and increase families access to support through local barbershops across the country.

what is the buzz all about?
Throughout the year, Shackle Free and barbershops across the state participate in Fatherhood Buzz; an initiative to support barbershops in connecting dads with local resources to help build strong families. Local barbershops will provide resources and facilitate conversations around a specific Fatherhood Buzz event topic, with topic information and support from GoodDaddies Fatherhood Initiative and the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse.
Some of the upcoming events include:
