My Brother's Keeper—Stockton
When people hear about Stockton, California in the news, they usually hear of crime, bankruptcy, and foreclosures. Not surprisingly, many assume Stockton is a city with no opportunities, no hope and no love — and much of the data does not discourage that point of view. While it’s true that Stockton is up against incredibly difficult challenges, our city is also full of resilience, strength and heart. Stockton can never realize its full potential until we create pathways to opportunity for all residents, including our boys and young men of color.
