White House Hosts Final My Brother's Keeper National Summit

December 22, 2016

On December 14, 2016, the White House hosted the final My Brother's Keeper (MBK) National Summit. Nearly 300 leaders from MBK communities joined policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the progress, impact, and future of this initiative. In February 2014, President Obama launched MBK, a call to action to address opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color and to ensure that all young people have the tools they need to succeed. In response to the President’s call to action, new federal policy initiatives, grant programs, and guidance are being implemented in support of MBK.
