On July 21st, President Obama reinforced his commitment to young men of color through My Brother’s Keeper initiative. He assured that his Administration would continue to work to build ladders of opportunity for all young people across the country. The initiative encourages the use of proven tools that expand opportunity for young people, including access to basic health, nutrition, mentorship, high-quality early education and early introductions into the workforce, as well as partnering with communities and police to reduce violence and make our classrooms and streets safer.
As this issue continues to gain national attention, new partners have pledged their commitment to the initiative. Project MALES & The Texas Consortium for Males Students of color continue to be strong supporters of President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
