My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance) is an independent, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) born out of President Obama’s call to action to ensure all of our nation’s boys and young men of color have equal opportunity to achieve their full potential. Throug.. hout U.S. history, disparities in opportunities for millions of boys and young men of color have prevented them from reaching their full potential. A disproportionate number have entered a cycle of poverty, injustice and social immobility as a result of the unique systemic challenges that boys and young men of color face. MBK Alliance provides comprehensive and sustained interventions to improve life outcomes for boys and young men of color and empower them with the resources and support to get and stay on a path to success.
Cities United was launched in 2011 by Philadelphia Mayor, Michael Nutter, who partnered with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Casey Family Programs President and CEO, William C. Bell, Campaign for Black Male Achievement CEO, Shawn Dove, and the Nati.. onal League of Cities to forge a national network of communities focused on eliminating violence in American cities related to African American men and boys. Today, this movement has grown to nearly 90 cities committed to working with community leaders, families, youth, philanthropic organizations and other stakeholders to reduce the epidemic of homicides and violence plaguing African American young men and boys. These cities also are focused on restoring hope to their communities and building pathways to justice, employment, education and increased opportunities for residents.
The Executives’ Alliance is a national philanthropic alliance that will “evaluate promising approaches, advocate for effective public policy and systems change, and invest in young men as assets for America’s future.
