Obama Continues Efforts of My Brother’s Keeper Initiative

Former President Barack Obama has followed through on the initiative he introduced two years that focuses on attaining better educational and workforce opportunities for boys and young men of color.

The nonprofit Obama Foundation, established by Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama with the goal of improving civic engagement, will now include the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance as a core agenda.

While the alliance was always expected to merge with the Obama Foundation, the pairing wasn’t officially announced until last week.

Michael Smith, executive director of My Brother’s Keeper, said the alliance “has catalyzed an unprecedented all-in movement for our kids who are so often left on the margins of society.”

In an issued statement, Smith said he is “excited to take this work to the next level with greater focus on impact, innovation and collaboration.”
