What we do
The Mayor’s Office of Black Male Engagement (OBME) works to close the opportunity divide for men and boys of color. We strive to better the communities where they live and reduce the economic and social disparities that affect them.
Our work is inclusive. We also serve Latino, Asian, immigrant, and other populations of men and boys in Philadelphia.
OBME supports the efforts of the Mayor’s Commission on African American Males. We also coordinate My Brother’s Keeper Philadelphia, a program that aims to dismantle systems of inequality. OBME is part of the larger Office of Public Engagement.
Brotherly Love: Health of Black Men and Boys in Philadelphia lays the groundwork for health care providers, city officials, city residents, and other stakeholders to develop actionable next steps to improve health outcomes for the city’s Black men and boys.
