This week hundreds are gathering in Chicago for the first Obama Foundation Leadership Summit and you can participate via live stream and archived videos. This is an amazing opportunity to engage, connect and empower active citizenship.

“Our goal is not to present some fixed theory of how change happens,” former President Barack Obama said as he opened the main session. “Our goal in this session is not to pump you with a whole bunch of PowerPoints, data and information or a blueprint for how you can go back and do what you’re doing even better. In many ways, we want to learn from you.

“In other words, this is a big brainstorming session, it’s a big hackathon.”

Let’s get in on it! #GetCivic with The Obama Foundation Summit.
