4B represents our approach to the design and delivery of outreach initiatives, programs and services to Black, Brown, and Bronze populations from marginalized communities. It reminds us of the need to incorporate social and emotional learning, trauma-informed care, and other tools to mitigate the list of systemic inequalities impacting these communities. The 4th B, Brilliance, ensures we create opportunities that magnify or provoke the resilient brilliance that continually outshines and overrides inequality and oppression.
