For Father’s Day, Tory Lanez decided to make the day special for 100 black fathers who were recently released from incarceration.
Tory’s Dream City Fund liked with Van Jones and Cut50 to launch “100 Black Fathers” in partnership with Amazon Music, Door Dash and Dream Corps to provide free dinners and gifts for the former inmates released during this pandemic and their families.

I wrote this open letter to #100BlackFathers and asked @the_dream_corps @cut50 to join me and my #DreamCityFund to bring some joy and celebration to these men for their first #fathersday since being released from incarceration. As a Black father raising Black children in this world, things aren’t easy. We live in a country that has a broken system. I'm looking forward to getting to know these men and their stories, and will continue to find ways to help black men getting back into society feel seen, and valued, and supported. Shout out to @amazonmusic for helping me get them gifts and @doordash for delivering Father’s Day dinner to them and their families across the country.
