Finding Us in Ferguson: A resource toolkit

Community Advocates Public Policy Institute, with assistance from the ACLU of Wisconsin and Center for Youth Engagement releases "Finding Us in Ferguson: A Resource Toolkit for Youth Workers, Youth Activists and Youth-Serving Organizations in Milwaukee." We offer these resources to organizations looking for help in supporting the young people they work with in addressing current events and racial justice - in particular, issues surrounding police killings of unarmed men in Ferguson, New York and Milwaukee.


For more information and to download the toolkit, please see the Boys & Men of Color website.
