Series of Reports on Health of Young Men and Boys of Color
New reports show that place matters when it comes to the health of young men and boys of color.
These reports, funded by The California Endowment, collectively show that place matters when it comes to the health of African-American and Latino boys and young men. Negative health outcomes for boys and young men of color are a result of growing up in neighborhoods of concentrated disadvantage – places that are more likely to put boys and young men directly in harm’s way and reinforce harmful behavior. Each of these reports highlight specific challenges to the health of boys and young men of color and provide recommendations for improving their health outcomes.
