(Black PR Wire) ATLANTA – 100 Black Men of America, Inc., the global leader in mentoring minority youth, launched registration for the 35th Annual Conference. This virtual event will focus on the urgent need to ACT in transformative ways to help youth and communities adapt to meet the challenges of COVID-19 and triumph in the next normal. The 2021 conference will take place June 17-19, and attendees from the 100’s global community will feature thought leaders from across corporations, government, foundations, nonprofits, and the health industry. As COVID-19 continues to profoundly affect communities of color, the 100 will utilize their conference to harness their collective resources and address the needs of vulnerable populations.
Members from across the 100’s network, along with their community partners, invite the public to attend this annual think tank that celebrates black achievement, spotlights youth, awards mentoring leadership, and recognizes excellence across many industries. Sessions are designed to address the systemic problems facing the black community. Due to the global pandemic, many organizations and elected officials are discussing long-standing socio-economic issues for the first time. 100 members have created programs and dedicated resources, while advocating for youth, families and the communities, since the inception of 100 Black Men. As others pivoted, 100 chapters continued the existing work of the 100. The knowledge learned and the success realized will be shared, action steps for immediate activation in communities will be outlined, and youth who benefitted from virtual mentoring will be on display.
It’s time to ACT. Everyone is invited to this free event. Join the 100 for steps to help you adapt during these challenging times we’re all facing. Let’s be triumphant together.
