The household median net worth for White Bostonians is $247,500. Black Bostonians have a median net worth of $8.
People of color are consistently shut out of Boston's prosperity. In 2016, 15 Black men from Boston, led by long-time educator and community activist Bill Moran, set out to disrupt the status quo with the Community Mentoring Team (CMT).
Today, CMT is committed to leveraging strategic and innovative partnerships with developers, contractors, labor unions, government officials, and community leaders to create career opportunities, tools and linkages --- all aimed at creating a stable, thriving and self-sustaining Black community in Boston.
With support from Millennium Partners Boston, CMT recruited, prepared, and mentored 25 young Black women and men for electrical apprenticeships with IBEW Local 103/JATC.
Thirty young Black women and men recruited for electrical apprenticeships with IBEW Local 103/JATC.
CMT and Bill Moran are awarded Certificates of Recognition from Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.
