Based on Foundation Center’s recent report, this event features perspectives from funders, practitioners, policymakers, and young people about the important work taking place in DC and nationally to improve life outcomes for black males.
While there is a groundswell of momentum, particularly in light of My Brother’s Keeper, there is much work to be done to build upon and sustain this momentum. This event will provide a venue to advance the conversation around black male achievement.
