New Report Finds Increased BMA Commitment By U.S. Cities

CBMA published Promise of Place: Building Beloved Communities for Black Men and Boys, gauging and scoring city-level commitment to Black males.

The second edition of this report finds that even as federal support is eliminated or scaled back, cities have increased their level of engagement 62 percent overall. Detroit and Washington, D.C. remained the two highest-scored cities.

“City-led approaches are needed to reduce the barriers that Black men and boys face and build safe, healthy, and hopeful communities for everyone,” said Anthony Smith, Executive Director, Cities United. “We are encouraged by the widespread city-level engagement.”
