Cal State Bakersfield’s Social Justice department with support from Building Healthy Communities South Kern is hosting a California State Assembly Legislative Hearing this Tuesday to understand the role health plays in achieving successful outcomes for Boys and Men of Color (BMOC).
With California fast becoming a “minority” dominant state, a few years ago the state legislature determined they need to take a look at some of the challenges that we see with Latinos and Black Americans being incarcerated at a disproportionate rate in California. The Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color has been tasked with looking at the inequities that are impacting the life outcomes of BMOC.
The hearing will held on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. at CSUB’s Dezember Reading Room, 9001 Stockdale Hwy. in Bakersfield.
For more information, please call Dr. Mark Martinez at (661) 654-2352.
