My Brother's Keeper: Where Equity and Data Meet

Recording: My Brother's Keeper: Where Equity and Data Meet, Date TBA

In the ongoing discussion of race and equity, boys and young men of color continue to face a number of challenges. My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative launched by President Barack Obama in 2014, is one of the organizations addressing the opportunity gap to ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. Data has shown us the gaps between boys and young men of color and the rest of the population when it comes to education, earnings, health, employment, neighborhood safety, workforce development and encounters with the law enforcement and justice system. By organizing and presenting local data in a way that supports policy and system change and increases accountability, we can consider data as a potential solution when it comes to racial disparities.
