On the ninth anniversary of DACA, I’m thinking about all the brave DREAMers who have stepped forward to tell their stories. They have fueled a movement that is still working to guarantee the permanent protections they deserve. I will always be inspired by their fight.
It's always great catching up with @POTUS, and I'm grateful for everything he and his administration have done to protect and expand the Affordable Care Act. Let's keep working until every American has access to quality, affordable health care.
Great news folks: we hit record-high health care enrollment. 31 million people now have coverage through the Affordable Care Act. Couldn’t think of a better person to celebrate this milestone with than President Obama, so I gave him a call. https://t.co/QtLeskSNnY
On National Gun Violence Awareness Day, we #wearorange to honor those we’ve lost. As we begin to emerge from the pandemic, let’s not forget the other epidemic killing far too many Americans—and keep working to pass commonsense gun safety laws that will protect our communities.

Michelle and I are excited to share our latest show from Higher Ground: We The People. Some of our favorite artists got together with amazing animators to remix civics—and the result is a lot better than what we had in school. Check it out on @Netflix this July 4.
It’s great to be back in my hometown and even better to spend some time with talented young people in Jackson Park. I’m proud of the Wolfpack for a terrific season, and for their leadership off the field as well. Thanks for letting me give a guest pep talk!
Surprise! @BarackObama just dropped by the Chicago Southside Wolfpack practice in Jackson Park — the site of the future Obama Presidential Center — to congratulate the youth football team on a great season. https://t.co/EH5i1rOEid

On the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, we remember all those who were killed and the survivors who bravely continue to share their stories so that we never forget this painful part of our history. Take a moment to learn about what happened:

[email protected] is way ahead of where I was at 23—and not just because he’s a better athlete. It was great talking with him about everything from our shared love of reading to how we can lift up the next generation of leaders.
At today’s @MBK_Alliance Leadership Forum, we’re talking about the amazing levels of activism we’ve seen since George Floyd was killed—and the need to reimagine policing and public safety. Join us live.
At a time when so much of the debate around vaccinations and other public health measures has been politicized, this article offers a useful reminder of the role of modern science in fundamentally transforming all of our lives.
George Floyd was murdered one year ago today. Since then, hundreds more Americans have died in encounters with police—parents, sons, daughters, friends taken from us far too soon. But the last year has also given us reasons to hope.
On Wednesday, I’ll join activists, community leaders, and young people from the @MBK_Alliance for a conversation about transforming tragedy into meaningful reform in the year since George Floyd's murder.
