My Brother’s Keeper Newark Tour Comes to Luis Muñoz Marín
Oct 27, 2015
Luis Muñoz Marín School for Social Justice was the first middle school selected to participate in the My Brother’s Keeper of Newark (MBKN) initiative. MBKN is an affiliate of President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper platform, a mentoring alliance for boys of color. On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, Mayor Ras Baraka, visited the school to meet with the 6th, 7th and 8th grade male students. Mayor Baraka along with The Street Doctor: Earl Best, and Pastor Pablo Pizarro of the Light House Assembly of God, addressed social-economic barriers with the young audience. They all encouraged the young men in the making to reach their full potential. The Marín School Community looks forward to a continued partnership with the MBKN movement and other private entities.
