The City of Flint has accepted President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) challenge to improve opportunity for boys and young men of color. On May 4, 2015, the City released its MBK Report and Action Plan, and the Mayor announced the formation of a My Brother’s Keeper Task Force to continue to guide the initiative.

- Identifying policy changes that could be implemented to eliminate or overcome barriers that limit opportunity for boys and young men of color
- Issuing a report to the community by January 31, 2016 with further recommendations for action
Individuals may nominate themselves or others. Nominations for the MBK Task Force will be accepted through June 26, 2015. Please complete the form below and submit to the Office of the Mayor, 1101 S.
