Our Partners


We express gratitude to the city and county officials, post-secondary partners, K-12 representatives, the youth who inspire us to do better, and the many community partners who have contributed to the development of our campaign. It serves as an acknowledgment of what might be if we move forward together through a racially conscious lens and an unapologetic commitment to reimagine a community where our young men of color are valued, loved, supported and seen for all their glorious potential.
