“A Time for Action: Mobilizing Philanthropic Support for Boys and Young Men of Color” lays out a vision and a bold plan of action to maximize the potential of philanthropy and the private sector to increase opportunity for boys and young men of color that benefits the entire country. While it focuses on systems, policies, and practices that profoundly shape the lives of our sons and brothers, the recommended actions also help to create the conditions for all children and young adults to thrive, regardless of race, ethnicity or gender. The plan is bolstered by $194 million in initial investments in key initiatives, including for example programs to enhance school learning environments and reduce the overrepresentation of young people in the justice system.
