  1. Plan to Empower Young Men from Minority Backgrounds

    President Obama has announced a $200 million, five-year initiative to support young men from black and Hispanic communities in an economy that has not been kind to them. In the past, the president has been heavily criticized by African American community leaders for neglecting the groups that bear the brunt of America’s socioeconomic disparities. Drawing on his own experience as a disenfranchised young African American, Obama outlined an initiative based on public-private partnerships, which will encourage philanthropic foundations, business and civic leaders to discover new ways to empower marginalized young men.
