The California Executives’ Alliance to Expand Opportunities for Boys and Men of Color is a collaboration of CEOs from 19 California foundations dedicated to aligning their efforts, resources and influence to improve the lives of boys and men of color in California. Since May 2014, these foundations have worked to develop an approach to build momentum and public awareness to address the systemic barriers that have limited access to opportunity to a population critical to California’s future.
The data and information this group has collected was put into this brochure. I wanted every page to help draw attention to the tremendous opportunity to build a stronger state, share proven solutions with their extensive networks, align resources, and centralize tracking and reporting of data and outcomes across foundations. It was an honor to participate in creating this brochure, and at the same time, learn about the obstacles these young men face when achieving their goals.
