A delegation of Archons met with the U.S. attorney general, Archon Eric Holder (Epsilon), at the Department of Justice on October 22, 2014, to discuss voting rights and the attorney general’s “Smart on Crime” Initiative. On that same day, the Archons met with senior White House officials, including assistant to the President and cabinet secretary, Archon Broderick Johnson (Epsilon); special assistant to the President and chief of staff for the Office of Public Engagement and the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, Yohannes Abraham; deputy assistant to the President for urban affairs, justice and opportunity at Domestic Policy Council, Roy Austin; and Office of Public Engagement associate director Ashley Allison. That meeting focused on My Brother’s Keeper, criminal justice issues and Affordable Care Act enrollment. The delegation had already met at the George Washington University Law School with Archon Blake Morant, the new dean, and Archon Roger Fairfax, a professor and associate dean, earlier that day. This series of meetings were part of an overall plan to advance the Grand Boulé Social Action Agenda, lead the campaign for social justice in our communities and advocate for our young men.
