Barack & Michelle Obama today announced The Obama Foundation:
The Obama Foundation will focus on developing the next generation of citizens — and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century. It will draw strength from the rich diversity and vitality of Chicago, where the President and First Lady met and raised their daughters, and it will have nonprofit programs across the city, the United States, and the world.
Whether you are looking for a role in your community or have been active on the field of democracy for years, we look forward to working with you and for you. Together, we will build programs to inspire us all to be better citizens and to help young leaders develop their ideas. This will be a design year for us, and we hope you’ll join in.
"More than a library or museum, it will be a living, working center for citizenship."
In the video below, the Obamas ask you to tell them what you'd like to see their presidential center to focus on.
