Hanna Boys Center Hosts Speaker Marc Philpart of PolicyLink

Hanna Boys Center is excited to announce that Marc Philpart, senior director at PolicyLink, will be the keynote speaker at its second Professional Networking Breakfast on March 9, 2017. Marc will speak about the Boys and Men of Color Framework, which develops comprehensive strategies to create and expand opportunities for boys and young men of color in collaboration with local and state partners. Marc will also discuss how the Framework supports culturally relevant trauma-informed practices that dramatically improve life outcomes among young people. The breakfast will provide an opportunity for public education, healthcare and human services professionals—as well as others engaged in youth wellness, advocacy and education—to come together and network.

“We are thrilled that Marc can share with our community some of the great equity lessons coming out of PolicyLink, which we hope will spur new conversations and action both here at Hanna Boys Center and in Sonoma County,” says Mary Kelly Persyn, director of the Hanna Institute. “In our community work to heal trauma and build resilience, Hanna Institute is committed to an equity framework that requires deep collaboration with the people we seek to serve. PolicyLink is a national thought leader in a wide range of equity work, from grassroots efforts to law and policy. We are thrilled to be able to kick off this year’s breakfast series, which will focus on various aspects of equity, with someone as remarkable as Marc.”
