As the original gift-giver, you'll fill in the blanks in a letter to the recipient, including his/her name, relationship to you, gift occasion, and so on. Next, you'll complete a simple lighthearted questionnaire about gift-giving such as the best and worst gifts you've ever received, and gifts that you've regifted or returned. Below the questionnaire there is room for a short, person

This volume draws attention to the potential of a public policy focus on young men and boys of color as a high-leverage strategy for promoting an agenda for equitable, sustainable, healthy communities in California and across the Nation.
