MBK Framework - Equity: None of Us Are Free Until all of Us Are Free
MBK Communities apply an equity lens to every approach to uncover policies and practices that have historic and systemic implications for boys and young men of color. MBK focuses on issues impacting individuals and groups historically oppressed or underserved in order to build coalitions that address oppression at the cross-sections of race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, etc. It is no longer acceptable to champion “equity” for some people; we need to achieve equity for all people.
Understanding Racial Equity
Partners have a common understanding of racial equity that includes all marginalized groups.
Empowerment of Traditionally Marginalized Communities
Local decision makers create new opportunities for those most affected by policies to have a meaningful say in creating new policies and change.
