In February, the Obama Foundation hosted the first-ever MBK Rising! event in Oakland, CA to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the My Brother's Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance). The event brought together hundreds of young men of color and their allies who are part of a growing network of leaders working to break down the barriers that prevent boys and young men of color from achieving their goals.
We were extremely excited to have two New Profit team members, Tulaine Montgomery, Managing Partner, and Delanoe Johnson, Senior Associate, in attendance. They had the opportunity to speak with members of the MBK community at the event about important topics related to creating a brighter future for not only boys and young men of color, but for our communities and country as a whole.
