... final report and recommendations of the first statewide Taskforce on the Condition of African American Men in Illinois. This document, A Closer Look: An Examination of the Condition of African American Men in Illinois, represents the work of the Taskforce over the past six months. Established by statute in August 2008 (20 ILCS 1305/10-32), the Taskforce has examined the persistent and complex disparities and profound lack of opportunities that create barriers to success for a disproportionate number of African American men.
Through formal assessment of resources and data and "grassroots" exploration of the opinions of over 500 African American males who participated in town hall meetings across Illinois, the Taskforce has formulated recommendations for policy in areas of health, employment, criminal justice, education and fatherhood. The recommendations should guide us in our important work to improve the critical services [for] African American men across Illinois -- with such help those men will be enabled to realize their full potential and enriching life for all of Illinois' citizens.
