JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

In time for Father's Day this weekend, a group of concerned dads protested outside the Hinds County Chancery Court building Friday morning to raise awareness about fathers that care. They want to see equal custody rights for men and women.

Organizers tell us that good fathers are hurt by long-standing biases that diminish their role as parents. 

"They're trying to say that fathers don't want to be in kids lives but that's not always the case. And that's what they're trying to get people to realize now," says Khaaliq, one of the organizers.

The Fathers' Rights Movement is a national organization, and similar rallies took place across the country Friday.
