Long Beach My Brother’s Keeper
The City of Long Beach recently launched My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Local Action Plan, a significant endeavor to establish and implement new approaches to address the needs and priorities of youth and ensure that all young people, including boys and young men of color, have the opportunity to succeed.
The City of Long Beach is participating in the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) National Summit (Summit) on Youth Violence Prevention alongside 15 select cities across the nation. The Summit is designed to encourage cities to share ideas and best practices for youth violence prevention and community building with DOJ officials and representatives from various state agencies.
The public is invited to attend a Local Action Summit to discuss ideas for achieving positive life outcomes for youth, as part of the “My Brother’s Keeper” (MBK) Community Challenge. The event will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015, at 6:00 pm at Ernest McBride Park, 1550 Martin Luther King, Jr.
