Why We're Here/Action Items for 2022 + Hopeful Outcomes
To provide a space for retreat that facilitates reflection on how to best address issues of concern for Black Men, such as violence prevention, mental health, youth mentorship, safe corridors, walkability, and more.
This foundational event will serve to provide attendees with the necessary tools to return to their communities and implement immediate action initiatives and programs. It is intended to assist in developing a network of Black Men to work within their immediate neighborhoods to guide, support, and offer outlets for others through the process of workshops, thought sessions, and imagining creative strategies to build bridges of success through securing action-based initiatives. Black Men of all ages are invited to attend.
