Happen for Boys and Men of Color

JOIN SONS & BROTHERS
The Future is in Color

Young people of color are tomorrow's innovators and leaders: a source of strength, creativity and economic dynamism. Our #SonsAndBrothers are invaluable assets who need opportunities to achieve and contribute like all young people. Inspired by President Barack Obama’s "My Brother’s Keeper" initiative, an alliance of local and national organizations, communities and corporations have come together to focus on helping America's young men of color reach their full potential in school, work and life and convene a conversation on how each of us can support our #SonsAndBrothers. When our sons and brothers succeed, we all succeed.
