Introduction

Two of the most powerful, connected, and influential people in the world recently had their schedules open up. Now they are launching an initiative that educates and empowers active, informed, engaged, and purposeful citizens. It’s something you’ll want to support:

“The Obama Foundation will be a living, working startup for citizenship — an ongoing project for us to shape, together, what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century. We are based on the South Side of Chicago and will have projects all over the city, the country, and the world. We want to hear from you. Send us your ideas, your hopes, your beliefs about what we can achieve together. This will be your Foundation just as much as it is ours, so share your voice at obama.org.”
