President Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper in February 2014 to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color and to ensure all youth can reach their full potential. In 2015 the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance) was launched, inspired by My Brother’s Keeper, to scale and sustain this mission. In late 2017, MBK Alliance became an initiative of the Obama Foundation. Within the Obama Foundation, MBK Alliance focuses on building safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity.

Our Reimagining Policing town hall, “Spotlighting Reforms and Progress,” will be streaming here live this Thursday, March 4 at 1:30 pm EST.

Join The Alliance

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.
