How President Obama is Taking Action

He’s announced a new initiative with leading foundations and businesses that will take a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to build ladders of opportunity and unlock the full potential of boys and young men of color — and they’re getting to work immediately.

He signed a Presidential Memorandum establishing the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force to help determine which public and private efforts are working, how the Federal government can support those efforts, and how we can get more folks involved in those efforts across the board.

That doesn’t only benefit our kids facing tough circumstances — it benefits all Americans.
