  • Key findings

This report explores the barriers that disadvantaged youth face, particularly young men of color, and quantifies the enormous costs this poses to the U.S. economy. In particular, this report focuses on the significant disparities in education, exposure to the criminal justice system, and employment that persist between young men of color and other Americans. The report outlines why it's important for our nation -- from business, faith, and civic leaders, to local law enforcement -- to invest in the lives of our nation's young people.
