My Brother's Keeper Madison Community Pledge

June 10, 2015 11:30 AM

Recently I was joined by MMSD Superintendent Cheatham, Judge Koval, Chief Koval, District Attorney Ozanne, Sheriff Mahoney, Alder Bidar-Sielaff, Dr. Ruben Anthony, Dr. Jerlando Jackson, Dr. John Odom, and Mr. Everett Mitchell on behalf of UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank to release the My Brother's Keeper Madison Report and Recommendations for Action and unveil the MBK Madison Community Pledge. I am grateful for the partnership of these individuals, the organizations they represent, and many more who have made MBK a priority.

While the City of Madison and our MBK partners are committed to fulfilling the two goals selected by our boys and young men of color (ensure all youth graduate from high school and ensure all youth stay safe from violent crime and receive second chances) progress cannot happen alone. We are asking that Madisonians sign onto the MBK challenge via the pledge.

The pledge is simple; we are asking community members to take action and join in on the MBK initiative.  From taking time to volunteer and mentor youth of color, to simply working to change one's thought processes, there is something for everyone. Take the pledge by clicking here and encourage your friends and colleagues to do the same.
