Men & Boys of Color
Collaboration that spotlights the needs of men and boys of color (MBOC) and influences grantmakers to make appropriate responses is one of JAG's primary focuses. JAG provides thought leadership on men and boys of color work and develops strategic intersectional opportunities. Four of our six partners are also individually engaging in the work.
Framework for Men and Boys of Color
JAG has developed a framework for how the field should invest in men and boys of color. The disparities that form the basis for this work are rooted in historical and structural inequities. Investments need to address these broader inequities within diverse communities and also need to be coordinated among funders in order to be successful.
Several JAG partners are holding symposiums that bring together funders, nonprofits, thought leaders, and others who are involved in MBOC work. JAG will play a role in coordinating participation and presentations from multiple JAG partners.
