James Cole Jr. general counsel, delegated the duties of deputy secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, Karol Mason, assistant attorney general for the Office of Justice Programs at the U.S. Department of Justice; and Michael D. Smith, special assistant to the President and senior director of cabinet affairs for My Brother's Keeper at the White House, will participate in a panel discussion and town hall meeting on the continued progress of President Obama's My Brother's Keeper Initiative (MBK) in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, May 9.

The President launched MBK to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by young people, including boys and young men of color, to ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. In response to the President's call to action, nearly 250 communities in all 50 states, 29 Tribal Nations, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico have accepted the President's My Brother's Keeper Community Challenge. Cole, Mason and Smith will be joining youth and members of the My Brother's Keeper Fulton County Task Force for the event.
