Community Conversations

MBK Community Conversations Initiative

Forged by a partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Black Male Engagement (OBME) and the Community College of Philadelphia’s Center for Male Engagement, the Community Conversations Initiative is a platform to engage residents and leaders. The initiative is a monthly forum where community members and leaders discuss challenges, opportunities, and solutions that address dismantling inequities that impact the lives of men and boys of color in the city.

The Community Conversations Initiative focuses on discussions that include but are not limited to:

  • Education
  • Economic Development
  • Justice
  • Health/ Wellness

The Mayor’s Office of Black Male Engagement is dedicated to closing the opportunity divide for men & boys of color.

 The Community College of Philadelphia values community engagement and service as an important part of its mission. The institution addresses broad economic, cultural and political concerns in the city and beyond through a variety of community service initiatives.
