The other day I had a chance to visit a COVID-19 vaccination site in Greenbelt, MD. It was great to see so many folks getting their shot. If you need one, sign up today at — and then spread the word so we can keep our families and communities safe.
On International Nurses Day, let’s celebrate the nurses and medical professionals around the world who do so much for so many. And let’s thank them the best way we can: by getting the COVID-19 vaccine and encouraging our friends and family to do the same.
Happy 90th birthday to Willie Mays! If it wasn't for folks like Willie and Jackie Robinson, I might never have made it to the White House. The spirit he played with and the way he carried himself changed the game and people’s attitudes. I’m glad he’s still going strong.
This week, Admiral Bill McRaven joined me to reflect on the operation against Osama bin Laden ten years ago.
Looking back, I am grateful to Bill, his team, and the thousands of people across government, whose work made it possible for that mission to succeed.
Bernie Wong was a trailblazer who spent her life advocating for Asian Americans and immigrant communities in Chicago and across the U.S. Her legacy of community leadership inspired me and so many others, and her impact will be felt for generations to come.
It’s official: Today marks 100 days since President Biden took office. Here’s a look at his historic accomplishments over the last three months:
During President @JoeBiden’s first 100 days, the economy has created more than 1 million jobs, more than 200 million shots have been administered, and we’re on our way to cutting child poverty in half. And as we saw last night, this is just the beginning.
Today, the @USCensusBureau released apportionment data! This means that states know with certainty their congressional representation for the next decade and how many districts they must draw during this year’s redistricting process.
States have just learned how many seats they have in Congress for the next decade. This process is an important step in making sure our maps—and electoral process—better reflect our communities. Get involved in the fight for fair maps with @AllOnTheLine:
No challenge poses a greater threat to our planet and to future generations than climate change. I’m proud that the @ObamaFoundation supports young people leading this fight and that the Obama Presidential Center reflects our commitment to sustainability.
Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more. Michelle and I send our prayers to the Floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice that George and so many others have been denied.
I want to share a new book, Power to the Public, that illustrates how nonprofits and governments can use technology to solve some of the most pressing issues of our time. It includes some good examples and is worth a read for anyone who cares about making change happen.
