The Task Force call to action follows results of a Harvard University and University of California-Berkeley study that looked at the upward mobility for children living in large metropolitan areas. The report revealed that the Charlotte area ranked 50th out of the 50 largest US cities (and 97th in the 100 largest US cities).

Lead supporting partners of the Task Force include the Foundation For The Carolinas, Mecklenburg County, City of Charlotte, John M. Belk Endowment, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
