An Inescapable Network of Mutuality – Creating More Interconnected Movement for Young Men of Color

Location: Boulevard Room (2nd Floor)

President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper, now an initiative of the Obama Foundation, is centrally focused on reducing barriers and expanding opportunity for boys and young men of color. However, we recognize that creating communities where boys and young men of color can thrive must address interconnected issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration and socioeconomic status. Join a candid conversation about the progress made and the work that remains to create programs and policies rooted in the knowledge that the challenges and opportunities facing young men, young women and gender non binary youth of color are deeply intertwined.
