The event will be open press and streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov/live.
WHAT: The President will host an event at the White House with foundation leaders, corporate executives, and community leaders on the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.
WHEN: The afternoon of Thursday, February 27, 2014 (specific timing to be provided later this week).
