We Are Our Brothers' Keepers
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 humble, servant leader who “gave all of himself to the cause of freedom and justice.”
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.
As the country responds to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and racial injustice, it’s critical that every community has access to information.
