                America, including the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 
                as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), and in order to establish a

                ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment. (a) There is established the

                perspectives in the areas to be considered by the 
                Advisory Board.

                    (b) The President shall designate a Chairperson

                    (2) Increase the Nation's understanding of our 
                recent history of race relations and the course our 
                Nation is charting on issues of race relations and 
                racial diversity;
                    (3) Bridge racial divides by encouraging leaders in 
                communities throughout the Nation to develop and 
                implement innovative approaches to calming racial 
                    (4) Identify, develop, and implement solutions to 
                problems in areas in which race has a substantial 
                impact, such as education, economic opportunity, 
                housing, health care, and the administration of 
                    (b) The Advisory Board also shall advise on such 
                other matters as from time to time the President may 
                refer to the Board.
                    (c) In carrying out its functions, the Advisory

                and administrative support for the Advisory Board.

                    (b) The heads of executive agencies shall, to the 
                extent permitted by law, provide to the Advisory Board 
                such information as it may require for the purpose of 
                carrying out its functions.
                    (c) The Chairperson may, from time to time, invite 
                experts to submit information to the Advisory Board and

                the Government service (5 U.S.C. 5701-5707).

                Sec. 4. General. (a) Notwithstanding any other 
                Executive order, the functions of the President under 
                the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended, except
