Men of Color Alliance

MOCA is a support group  for men of color to address the issues that they face when they attend a predominately white institution/university (PWI):  identity, race, gender, relationships, stress, health, families, age, and more.  The group will focus on these issues as they are experienced on campus, at home, and in the media and society at large. The goal of the group is to work together and support one another, as we attempt to understand and tackle these issues in the 21st century as Men of Color.
