Fort Wayne UNITED is a Mayoral initiative started by Mayor Tom Henry in 2016. Under the direction of Iric Headley and a steering committee of local volunteers, it places two national efforts, Cities United and My Brother’s Keeper, into one program to provide positive opportunities and hope for black men and boys and make a meaningful difference with an emphasis on listening, input, letting voices be heard, and engagement.

Fort Wayne UNITED says their vision is for every black male in Fort Wayne to be respected and valued with an opportunity to reach their full potential. The mission is to advocate for and implement policies, practices, and procedures to ensure equity, and opportunity for black fathers, brothers and sons at home, work, school, and the community through collaborative efforts.
