Fenton joins A Gathering of Leaders

A future in which success for boys and men of color is the norm.

That is the vision. But what will it take to achieve significant change? A broad-based movement and the strategic coordination of funders, researchers, policymakers, advocates and practitioners.

Today is the start of A Gathering of Leaders, an annual convening of leaders from around the country working to unlock opportunity for boys and young men of color. Fenton will be presenting Talking the Talk: Messaging that Moves,  which will share messaging best practices and unveil some of the initial findings and recommendations from our research on talking about challenges and solutions for young men of color. In addition, many of our clients will be presenting their work, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Youth Radio and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

For the first time ever, you can participate in the Gathering virtually! Many of the sessions will be available by live-stream – click here to see the schedule and available sessions.  You can also follow along with the conversation using the hashtag #AGoL2014 or by following along with Fenton on Twitter.
