As Chicago navigates the health crisis, its residents continue to show up for one another in their communities. It’s one of the things I love most about the city—and one of the many reasons it’s such a good home for the @ObamaFoundation@twitter.com . https://twitter.com/obamafoundation/status/1263166150923468800
Congratulations to the HBCU Class of 2020! Michelle and I are so proud of you. As you set out to change the world, we’ll be the wind at your back. Can’t wait to see what you achieve. https://twitter.com/UNCF/status/1261773529936097280
Despite all the time that’s been lost, we can still make real progress against the virus, protect people from the economic fallout, and more safely approach something closer to normal if we start making better policy decisions now. https://www.vox.com/2020/5/13/21248157/testing-quarantine-masks-stimulus
Change comes when all of us step up and play our part in this democracy. By encouraging our young people, like these students from @ChiPubSchools@twitter.com , to start engaging in our civic life today, we’re already creating something better for tomorrow. https://twitter.com/ObamaFoundation/status/1259933954934804481
The folks of the Chicago @FoodDepository@twitter.com —and food banks in communities like yours—are working overtime to feed the vulnerable and families who’ve fallen on hard times. But even as demand has spiked, donations have slowed. Their incredible efforts are worth supporting if you can. https://twitter.com/fooddepository/status/1256257163258978305
The pandemic has magnified the financial insecurity of too many American families, the deep and real racial disparities in our society – and the imbalanced burdens on working moms. We have to create something better for America on the other side of this. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/22/us/politics/women-coronavirus-2020.html
In moments of crisis, we look out for one other. And we need leaders with empathy who will bring people together rather than drive them apart. @JoeBiden@twitter.com has the character and experience to guide us through one of our darkest times and heal us through a long recovery. https://twitter.com/joebiden/status/1254042684131627009
This pandemic has painfully brought to the surface many of the reasons I launched @MBK_Alliance@twitter.com —structural racism robs too many of our kids of their futures. The leaders on today's call aren't just tackling this crisis; they’re helping us build a more equitable future for all. https://twitter.com/mbk_alliance/status/1253827839503278082
If we want life to approach anything like normal anytime soon, we need a comprehensive testing program. It’s not going to be cheap, but it will ultimately pay off many times over in saved lives, saved businesses, and saved jobs. https://www.vox.com/2020/4/13/21215133/coronavirus-testing-covid-19-tests-screening
While we continue to wait for a coherent national plan to navigate this pandemic, states like Massachusetts are beginning to adopt their own public health plans to combat this virus––before it's too late. https://www.newyorker.com/science/medical-dispatch/its-not-too-late-to-go-on-offense-against-the-coronavirus
We've all had to adapt to cope with a pandemic. Climate change will force far harsher changes on our kids. All of us should follow the young people who've led the efforts to protect our planet for generations, and demand more of our leaders at every level. https://www.wbez.org/stories/50-years-after-the-first-earth-day-young-activists-are-not-slowed-by-a-pandemic/f0af0efd-4033-4efa-9c1e-9601f90c82d7
Parents, you deserve a break – Michelle’s got storytime handled every Monday. She’s one of the best, I promise. (And I confess it makes me a little nostalgic.) https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1252263838508101634
