At an unprecedented meeting in Chicago on April 7, leaders of 26 foundations pledged to form an alliance addressing issues faced by boys and men of color.
The alliance will “evaluate promising approaches, advocate for effective public policy and systems change, and invest in these young men as assets for America’s future.”
Each of the member organizations is already engaged in or working to develop targeted investment strategies for black males or boys and men of color. Collectively, they are calling on other philanthropic organizations to join the movement and take concrete action.
