Impact of COVID-19 in Communities of Color

The Forward Promise Village of grantees have pivoted in these past few weeks to respond to the rapidly unfolding, multi-faceted crises created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our most vulnerable communities and populations have been hard hit by this disaster. Forward Promise coordinated several approaches to gain a deeper understanding of our grantees’ needs and what they are doing to effectively support boys and young men of color (BYMOC) and their families during this time. This document outlines the challenges emerging in their communities and solutions they are developing to ensure that BYMOC and their villages continue on the path to healing, growing, and thriving.
