we are issuing a national call to action, Freedom Summer 2022, for communities to create safe spaces for boys and young men of color during the summer months. Freedom Summer 2022 is an opportunity for individuals, community organizers and organizations to develop creative ways to keep our children engaged and off of the streets this summer.

No endeavor is too small! We’re calling for all hands on deck in turning the tide on youth violence.

President Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper in February 2014 to address the persistent opportunity gaps boys and young men of color face and to ensure all young people can reach their full potential.

Today, the Alliance works to unleash the power of communities working together to solve problems for boys and young men of color, at a level to improve real life outcomes. We believe communities are the unit of change to realize improved life outcomes for our boys.

We started My Brother’s Keeper so that every boy and young man of color in America would know that their dreams mattered as much as any other child’s.
