Take Action!

For The last decade, the Brothers, Sons, Selves Coalition has been working to develop the leadership of Black and Brown masculine of center youth to inform and steer campaigns and influence policy geared toward racial, economic, and educational justice. BSS empowers youth of color to build relationships rooted in trust and vulnerability in order to build safe communities where they can be they and all who come can be their true selves. We believe the change we inspire in one another is connected to the same change we seek to inspire in our communities. Your contribution will help build the next generation of youth leaders and support us in winning campaigns aimed at transforming our communities.
