We are excited to launch the inaugural Ford Men of Courage Game Changer Award – an award which recognizes an outstanding organization going above and beyond to impact their community and further the narrative regarding African males.

The award will launch in conjunction with the Ford Men of Courage Virtual Leadership Forum September 9-10, 2020. The two-hour open dialogue will center on Personal Branding, Leadership and Economic Stability.

Online nominations for the Game Changer award will open for eligible non-profit organizations both evenings in partnership with the Brotherhood Crusade and Los Angeles Urban League. The top three finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their vision to a larger panel of community leaders and influencers, for a $5,000 grant to advance their initiative. The deadline for submissions is October 10, 2020.

Ford encourages participants nationwide to join the conversation each day at 8:00 pm EST, 5:00 PM PST and to download the Men of Courage digital tool kit to continue the discussion in their own communities.


Launched in 2015, Ford Motor Company's Men of Courage (MOC)
is a national grassroots program designed
to build communities by advancing
the narrative of black men through storytelling.
