Obama Foundation  The Obama Foundation is a living, working start-up for citizenship — an ongoing project for us to shape, together, what it means to be a good citizen.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the O’bama Foundation!

Just released #Baracketology: @barackobama's #MarchMadness bracket. Who do you think will be his bracket buster?

One hundred percent of @LOVChicago's mentees have been accepted to four-year colleges or universities. Meet the program's founder, active citizen Jamila Trimuel, along with some of the girls in the program:

“The single most powerful word in our democracy is the word ‘We.’ We The People. We Shall Overcome. Yes We Can. It is owned by no one. It belongs to everyone. Oh, what a glorious task we are given, to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.” –@BarackObama on the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

On this day 53 years ago, hundreds of courageous men and women marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama for the right to vote.

Just Announced: Obama Foundation Scholars will provide students who are already making a difference in their communities with the opportunity to take their work to the next level through a one-year program with @harrispolicy. More info, including how you can apply, at the link in our bio.

Tonight, @BarackObama dropped by our community meeting to share his vision for the Obama Presidential Center—a place that will inspire young people on the South Side of Chicago and all over to change their worlds.

We’re wrapping up our Black History Month series with Michael Tubbs, the youngest and first African American mayor of Stockton, California. After Michael’s cousin was tragically murdered, he returned to Stockton with a mission to make his hometown a safer place. Through his public service, Michael has inspired young people throughout California to get involved and recognize the potential they have to create the world as it should be.

Gang life had given him a sense of belonging—then Mikva Challenge gave him an opportunity that changed his life. Now Berto Aguayo is doing the same for the kids in his neighborhood:

Today we continue our Black History Month series with a closer look at author Angie Thomas. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Angie wrote The Hate U Give, the story of a young adult who witnesses a police officer shoot and kill her friend. Through Angie’s best selling novel, millions of young Americans have been challenged to think critically and empathize—two important elements in understanding each other’s perspectives. Angie’s book is a reminder of the different ways young people can use their talents to start the conversations that will create a better world.

Our Black History Month spotlight series continues with Chicagoan Jahmal Cole. Jahmal is the founder of My Block, My Hood, My City, a nonprofit organization that provides underprivileged youth with opportunities beyond their neighborhood. While volunteering at the Cook County Jail, Jahmal realized many of the teenagers he interacted with had never left their neighborhood—not even to see downtown Chicago. This experience reminded him of his own struggles as a young adult, and how exposure to a broader world helped him understand his own potential. Since then, My Block, My Hood, My City has taken young people on life-changing field trips throughout Chicago and beyond to inspire self confidence and spark a desire to get involved.

Happy Presidents’ Day!

“He would take extraordinary care and precision and vision in recognizing the beauty and the grace and the dignity of people who are so often invisible in our lives.” —@BarackObama describing the work of portrait artist Kehinde Wiley
