Our future depends on the actions we take today. Reducing health disparities in Northern California begins with a strong vision.

My Brother's Keeper Sacramento Collaborative

The My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Sacramento Collaborative is committed to improving outcomes for local boys and men of color.

Building on research, partnerships and efforts already under way, the MBK Sacramento Collaborative is bringing systems leaders, community partners, youth-serving organizations and youth together to collectively address health, education, employment and justice system disparities for young men of color through policy advocacy, systems reform and support for effective programs.

The MBK initiative began in response to President Obama’s signing the My Brother’s Keeper Memorandum in February 2014, calling for national attention focused on “address(ing) persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color”.
