Assembly Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color – The California Assembly’s Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color was formed in 2012 to respond to the pressing needs of young men of color in California, where 70 percent of youth identify as people of color. In its first year, the Select Committee was able to help pass legislation on common sense school discipline that holds students accountable while keeping them in school as well as improving access to community colleges and career pathways programs. In the 2013 session, the Committee continued efforts to advance common sense school discipline, design a more comprehensive approach to school safety, and facilitate the implementation of the local control funding formula to ensure that young men of color can access opportunity in their neighborhoods starting at an early age.
