So Much Work To Do

Perception Institute’s statement on the Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action cases:

The neurobiologists, the environmental engineers, the welders, the poets, the food justice organizers, the pediatricians, the patent attorneys, the 2nd grade teachers, the art history professors … the list of possible professions our current high school students may inhabit is vast and ever changing. The benefit to our country, our communities, and actually, the globe in having those roles filled by students of every race, ethnicity, and class background is crystal clear. With all of the challenges we are facing, we need every ounce of talent, innovation, energy, and ability to collaborate that our students possess.

Boys and Men of Color Deserve a World Where Their humanity Is Seen and Valued. We Need a New Narrative.

The Perception Institute has spent years raising this issue. More than four years ago, we partnered with the Executives’ Alliance for Boys and Men of Color on “His Story: Shifting Narratives for Boys and Men of Color.” In this document, we created a toolkit to help reimagine the lived experiences and possibilities of boys and men of color.
