My Brother's Keeper Sacramento Guide to Action 2018

Mar 29, 2018

This guide identifies steps toward improving opportunities for boys and men of color in Sacramento, and highlights policy and systems reform opportunities within four impact areas: Healthy Development, Education, Workforce Development and Justice Systems.

  • Policy reforms in healthy development should ensure equitable community investment in low-income communities of color.
  • Policy reforms in education should increase transparency and youth-led accountability for districts, agencies and teachers around school-based discipline.
  • Policy reforms in workforce should develop incentivized access to job training in communities of color
  • Policy reforms in justice system should create community-based alternatives to youth incarceration and eliminate new youth entering into the justice system by establishing city policy of law enforcement referral to community-based organizations in lieu of arrest.
