About My Brother’s Keeper: The MBK Initiative began in 2014 when President Barack Obama rallied a call to action to support and uplift young boys and men of color. In 2016, Mayor Ginther joined Columbus City Council to support the movement by establishing a full-time position dedicated to the MBK Initiative in the Department of Neighborhoods.
