Now let’s get building

Hi there,
The past few days have been a whirlwind celebration—and we wouldn’t be here without supporters and neighbors like you. 

President and Mrs. Obama made a heartfelt return to Chicago for the official groundbreaking of the Obama Presidential Center. This celebration is a moving reminder of the community that made the Obamas who they are — the same community that will benefit from having a world class institution on the South Side of Chicago.

More than just a ceremony, the Obamas took the time to celebrate with the folks the Obama Presidential Center will serve. They met with the newest group of Obama Foundation Scholars learning to lead at the University of Chicago, and talked with local high school students about their hopes for the future. 

They also caught up with alums from the Obama Administration and paid a surprise visit to Chicago Women in Trades to show their support to those acquiring the skills to work on projects across this great city, including the Obama Presidential Center.

Check out the highlights.

We cannot thank you enough for how far your support has already brought us. And as construction begins, we are so grateful to have you with us on this journey.
