    What's at Stake

    All young people deserve the chance to dream big and have a real shot at making those dreams come true, despite the circumstances of their birth. But for millions of young boys and men of color, this is not a reality.

    Hopes and aspirations are stunted through a number of systematic forces and inter-generational roadblocks. A lack of family resources, disparities in education, unfair policing, and disproportionately high incarceration rates are among the key factors that have cast a shadow of poverty, injustice and social immobility on our country for far too long.

    In addition to their vast human cost, the opportunity gaps facing youth of color hold back the U.S. economy, lowering aggregate earnings, shrinking the labor market, and slowing economic growth.
