When President Obama met with House Democrats on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland asked the president about efforts to help minorities and at-risk youth, especially in the wake of the Trayvon Martin case and following Obama’s personal remarks last month about the need for a public “soul searching” on race in America.

According to Politico, Cummings urged Obama not to let the national moment pass without harnessing the administration’s efforts to help at-risk and minority youth. The president agreed, telling his audience, “We’re doing that,” according to the report.
