JOIN SONS & BROTHERS
The Future Will Be in Color

Young men 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.

"Wall Street can do what the political system can’t. It can invent financial instruments that enable it to profit from the difference between what governments plan to spend on incarceration, welfare and dependency, and what they’d actually spend if hundreds of thousands of young people went to college instead of prison."
