Michelle and I are in Chicago this week to talk to folks who are working on some of the city’s toughest challenges. Yesterday, I met with leaders from across Chicago, heard their stories, and shared ideas. Change is never easy, but we want them to know they’re not alone.
President and Mrs. Obama's first day in Chicago was full of energizing conversations with young activists, organizers, and students. From curbing gun violence to helping girls of color find mentorship, these leaders are addressing the unique challenges across our home city.
I’m always inspired by young leaders like Rachid Ennassiri, who is helping more people in Morocco get involved in the fight against climate change. This Giving Tuesday, join the @ObamaFoundation in supporting the work of changemakers like Rachid:
Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday, and as you think about where to donate this year, I want to introduce you to sixteen-year-old Sonia—an 11th grader who lives in Debauché, Haiti. Your support to our @GirlsAlliance Fund can help girls like her around the world:
This #SmallBusinessSaturday, we hope you’ll support the hardworking small business owners in your community—because shopping small means investing in the city you call home.
Meet small business owner Eric Williams, owner of @thesilverroom in Chicago:
Happy Thanksgiving! This year, we’re thankful for folks like Kids Off The Block who embody this season’s spirit of community. Recently, the Chicago organization hosted their 15th annual Feed a Teen event to encourage non-violence, promote education, and share a delicious meal.
