Stories of fatherhood with Dr. Manuel Xavier Zamarripa

In celebration of Father’s Day we have invited members of our staff and network to reflect on their experiences having or being a father and or a father figure and how that has impacted their work supporting women and girls.

In this episode, Dr. Manuel Xavier Zamarripa tells of his journey as a father, specifically as a Chicano dad, a Latino dad, reflecting on the connection to his own father who passed when he was just 12 years old. And, thinking, how losing his father at such a young age would impact his own ability to be a father.
