Building Healthy Communities: Improving Educational, Health, Social, and Economic Outcomes for Young Men and Boys of Color

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the The Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Race, Ethnicity and Diversity, I invite you to join fellow advocates, policymakers, researchers, practitioners, journalists, and stakeholders at the upcoming research and policy symposium focused on the most pressing issues facing young men and boys of color.

Building Healthy Communities: Improving Educational, Health, Social, and Economic Outcomes for Young Men and Boys of Color

Dates: September 28-29, 2010

Location: The California Endowment, Center for Healthy Communities, 1000 North Alameda St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

Convened in collaboration with The California Endowment, the symposium will feature commissioned studies, workshops and discussion groups focused on social policy interventions that seek to improve the health, education, social and economic outcomes experienced by young men and boys of color. The central goal is to draw attention to the potential of a public policy focus on young men and boys of color as a high-leverage strategy for promoting an agenda for equitable, sustainable, healthy communities in California and across the nation.

The symposium will feature new research and policy analysis by the nation’s leading scholars across five domains:

  • Education
  • Post-secondary Employment and Continuing Education
  • Community Health and Human Services
  • Juvenile Justice Systems, and
  • The Built Environment
