Jonathan Brice, deputy assistant secretary for policy in the Education Department’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, will participate in panel discussion on “Improving Outcomes for African-American Youth Through Education, Law and Policy” tonight in Washington, D.C.

The discussion will focus on the positive developments, persistent challenges and promising initiatives for African American youth from an educational, legal and policy perspective.

Earlier this year, President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their potential. In May, the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force submitted its report to the president, outlining a set of initial recommendations and a blueprint for action to expand opportunities for boys and young men of color and help all young people succeed.
