Young Latino Male Symposium, Arizona State University, Phoenix, Arizona

With the support from a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Center for Community Development and Civil Rights hosted the Young Latino Male Symposium at the Urban Research Lab at the downtown campus in Phoenix.

The symposium format allowed experts in the fields of education, criminal justice and community influences and interventions to study, discuss and determine the next steps the community should take to address the “predicament of young Latino males ‘failure to thrive’ in twenty-first century society.”

An annual summit will be held to encourage original research studies and to expand efforts to reach educators, policy makers, community leaders and media.
