Students have voiced support for “My Brother’s Keeper,” an initiative President Barack Obama announced Thursday to promote opportunities for young men of color — though some have noted that it should only be the beginning for national support to the group.

The President will establish a task force to work across executive departments and agencies to help young men of color reach their fullest potential, according to a White House press release. Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick ’09 traveled to the White House last week to participate in the unveiling of the initiative.
