Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry announced Wednesday that the City will make more of an effort to help young men of color.
Earlier this year, President Barack Obama announced his My Brother’s Keeper initiative, or MBK. It challenges cities across the country to implement plans that help young people of color reach their full potential.
In Fort Wayne, MBK will focus specifically on education, employment, health, and youth.
Stephanie Crandall with the mayor’s office says MBK will require making a lot of partnerships between local organizations.
