Detroit Mayor Dave Bing said he spoke with President Obama on Thursday about key issues he says are impacting young people in the city.

In a message posted on Twitter Bing said, "I just participated in a conference call with President Obama and several other mayors across the country to discuss two key issues impacting our youth, summer employment and reforming gun policy. I'm joining President Obama in his efforts on both fronts. My Active and Safe campaign is working to provide some 1,500 jobs through corporate contributions."
