The ICSSBM reviews the status of Black males in five principal focus areas: Criminal Justice, Education, Employment, Health and Social Factors. Within each of these areas the Commission seeks to share best practice information, offer suggestions or recommendations and if possible engage in initiatives to serve Black males like the youth symposiums, Dad’s Expo, the Black Barbershop Health Initiative and the HIV/Aids Awareness Program. The overall goal is to improve the quality of life for Black males and to reduce the disparate statistics that are reported annually.
Initiatives for the Commission this year include:
- Youth Empowerment Summit (fall event)
- Fatherhood/Dads Expo
- Black Male State Conference (tentative fall event)
- Annual HIV/AIDS Statewide Awareness Program
- State of Black Males Symposium
