Mission Statement

We, the members of Concerned Black Men of Los Angeles, have committed ourselves to support the social, emotional, academic and psychological development of African American youth. We offer ourselves as role models and pledge to help our children aspire to lofty goals and expectations. We pledge to protect, instruct, nurture, and discipline - to trust, share, honor, and above all - to be there when needed. We will teach our kids that men and women build institutions and do not engage in self-destructive behaviors. We will show our youth how to direct their energies toward positive activities of benefit to all, and remind them that respect for self and others is expected of men and women of distinction. We will provide community leadership and encourage this society to place our children's needs first. In caring for our youth, we take responsibility seriously and will remember that the future of our children depends on our success.
