RACIAL EQUITY

Boys and Men of Color (BMoC) experience significant disparities in life outcomes and we all stand to benefit by ensuring that men of color have an opportunity to grow up healthy, receive a good education and become productive members of society.

In recent years, the Council, along with many partners across sectors, has focused particularly on the inequities facing boys and men of color. The Council convenes and staffs the Oakland-Alameda County Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, which works to eliminate disparities for boys and men of color in education, employment, health, and juvenile and criminal justice.

Our framework for this work involves bringing to bear our core competencies of research, policy, collaboration, innovation and advocacy to affect the levers of change that impact outcomes in health; education; youth development; criminal justice; and employment and wealth for boys and men of color.
