Core Issues

Health

African-Americans have higher rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity, HIV/AIDS and cancer. African-Americans also are more likely to suffer from depression and substance abuse, and have less access to quality care due to financial barriers and lack of insurance.

Education

High school and college completion rates are lower for African-Americans than for the general population. Urban schools in which African Americans are concentrated are under-resourced.

Criminal Justice Reform

African American youth and adults are more likely to be incarcerated than their white counterparts. 

Economic Security/Jobs 

Rates of poverty and unemployment are higher in the African American community than in the general population.  African Americans are also less likely to own their own businesses than non-African Americans, and have less access to job training programs.
