The New York State Education Department (NYSED) hosted the 2019 New York State My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Symposium on Friday, May 31st in Albany. Nearly 1,000 students, parents, educational leaders, and citizens from across New York State gathered to hear about the impact of MBK, gain valuable knowledge, and get motivated to implement new strategies in their communities to address issues impacting boys and young men of color. The event included nationally renowned speakers, student-led panels, workshops, and a college resource fair. Read our newsletter to see highlights from the Symposium!
