Our four-part 'Community Schools and Equity' webinar series continued with our second installment, "My Brother's Keeper and Community Schools." During this webinar, participants learned about the connection between the White House's My Brother's Keeper Initiative and the community school strategy. Leaders of Oakland Unified School District and Chicago's Becoming a Man Program also discussed their approach to effectively reaching students of color in community schools.

You can view and listen to the webinar here to learn how community schools have responded to President Obama's call to action to empower young men of color and are leveraging community partnerships to address racial and educational disparities,
