California’s young men of color continue to face troubling academic disparities and persistent discrimination on their path to and through higher education, finds our new report, Hear My Voice: Strengthening the College Pipeline for Young Men of Color in California. The first Ed Trust–West report examining the intersection of race, gender, and education, Hear My Voice draws upon on-campus interviews with male students of color, parents, educators, and administrators, as well as reviewing existing research.

Below you’ll find the report, a short video about Hear My Voice, a researcher Q&A, and a petition urging California’s education leaders to publicly report important race and gender data.
