Obama, Chance And Steph Drop New PSA – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire, President Barack Obama is still making a difference. POTUS 44 has aligned with Chance The Rapper, and NBA superstar Steph Curry to let America's young people know they're important. AllHipHop reports the three linked up to produce a new 60 second PSA for Obama's My Brother's Keeper (MBK) campaign. The goal of MBK, is to address the ongoing opportunity gaps boys, and young men of color struggle to overcome. This initiative was launched in 2014, and has already made HUGE strides in the lives of young men across the country participating in the program. Matter of fact the following year, the My Brother's Keeper Alliance was born to accelerate the programs impact on targeted communities nationwide.
Today MBK has been initiated in more than 250 communities and counting, benefiting young people in need of mentorship and tutoring programs, to reducing youth violence and offering Pell Grants to incarcerated individuals to help them get a degree. It's all part of the Obama Foundation, where the overall mission is to ensure all young people reach their full potential.
It works because everyday citizens, local organizations and city leaders are stepping up to the plate to make a difference in their communities. Celebs like Chance, Steph, Kendrick Lamar and others are also jumping on the bandwagon to inspire and empower the next generation of leaders.
Shouts out to President Barack Obama for still raising up his sleeves, and everyone helping to make a difference. We see you! Below is a look at the new MBK Alliance PSA. Enjoy!
