Ashoka Fellow
United States
Fellow Since 2015
    This description of Trabian Shorters's work was prepared when Trabian Shorters was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
    Trabian founded BMe to update the narrative about black men in the United States, and to reveal them as catalysts for community building and national social change. BMe connects authentic black male leaders with key influencers across industries and sectors who share their belief in valuing all members of the human family. BMe invites people of all races and genders to become “Community-Builders” as well by sharing BMe’s uplifting content and participating in events and campaigns that create educated children, safer communities, healthier people and economic opportunities – led by black men.
