"Promise of Place" Milwaukee Black Male Achievement webinar and CBMA city field blocks assessment

As a follow-up to the Campaign for Black Male Achievement's (CBMA)  latest webinar  focusing on activity occurring on behalf of Black men in boys in Milwaukee and on our   Promise of Place report , we wanted to reach out to each of you as we move forward to further engage local stakeholders.

Following the webinar, please complete the CBMA City Field Building Blocks Assessment . The survey allows local leaders to assess their city's leadership, commitment and movement on behalf of Black men and boys and will provide critical information to CBMA about local activities and dynamics. Upon completion, they will receive an email with additional resources for strengthening the movement for Black men and boys in the city.

We are hoping to build on the great momentum sparked as a result of the webinar. This will greatly inform how CBMA can help move the work forward locally. Given the leadership, extensive networks, and connections in Milwaukee, please also share the webinar and encourage others engaged in this work to complete the assessment.  

We are hoping to receive a critical mass of assessments from Milwaukee before January 15th!
