Earlier this year, the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force released a one year progress report to assess the initial year of the Presidents’ Initiative.
My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) was officially launched by President Obama in February of 2014 to increase awareness and consequently public/private funding for boys and young men of color. Prior to the President’s call to action, influential organizations such as Open Society Foundations and Atlantic Philanthropies were already doing work around the issue.
The task force laid out three goals to assess progress of MBK: Improving state and local engagement; promoting private sector action; and public policy review and reform.
