Education Conference (3/30/19)

Holistically Addressing The Contemporary Young Urban Male

No doubt, urban males are the lowest and most traumatized students in the country.  We must address such plights with culturally responsive and innovative interventions.  The Sons of Thunder Coalition's Conference will teach upon the solutions.
