National Youth Alliance For Boys & Men Of Color

Supporting the leadership of young men of color is central to the work of the EA. That’s why several of our members provided seed investments to launch the National Youth Alliance for Boys & Men of Color (NYA), a nationwide network of youth-led organizing groups.  In doing so, they made the bet that our young men can be the architects of their own liberation.

Researchers have released a new report, "Black Men Making it in America" which details two specific findings: that the share of black men in poverty has fallen from 41% in 1960 to 18% today, and that the share of black men in the middle or upper class has risen from 38% in 1960 to 57% today.

A new study from researchers at Stanford University, Harvard University, and the Census Bureau has found that the widening wealth gap between Black men and White men is driven entirely by the difference in wage and employment rates, and that this wealth gap is present even among Black and White men who grew up in the same neighborhoods and attended the same schools.

Young men of color are taking center stage in the fight for stronger gun-control laws. They are rightfully noting the irony of America’s outpouring of support for White students in places such as Parkland, Florida, but the lack of support for students of color--some of who are frequently affected by gun violence.
