by Mary C. Piemonte

In an outgoing public announcement on Jan. 20, 2017, former U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle shared this video talking about their new foundation that  would be more than a library or museum for  American citizenship participation.

“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 said.
