This holiday weekend, let’s be safe and smart. It’s going to take all of us to beat this virus. So wear a mask. Wash your hands. And listen to the experts, not the folks trying to divide us. That's the only way we’ll do this—together.

Today I’m tipping my hat to all the giants in the Negro Leagues, from Satchel Paige to Toni Stone and so many others. Their brave example, first set 100 years ago, changed America’s pastime for the better––opening it up for new generations of players and fans alike.

Quoted @ObamaFoundation

As the sun went down on this historic day five years ago, the White House lit up in brilliant colors—an act that would have stood regardless of the Supreme Court ruling earlier that day. But as crowds gathered, it became a moment of celebration. Love had won.

Thinking back to that day reminds me of how much strength we can find in one another, in good times and in bad. We’ve seen it again over these past few weeks. It's a reminder that the fight is worth it––because a fairer, more just, and more loving world is always possible.

In the afternoon of June 26, 2015, @BarackObama traveled to Charleston to eulogize Reverend Pinckney after a racist shooting at Mother Emanuel AME church. President Obama began to speak of grace. Then he sang. Go behind the scenes of this moment in part two of our series.

Quoted @ObamaFoundation

Just a few moments after 10 am ET on June 26th, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a landmark decision when they legalized same-sex marriage and struck down same-sex marriage bans across the country. In that moment, love won. Watch part one of our three part series:

Jim’s courage and persistence helped change America for the better. And so did every American who marched, organized, stood up, came out—or changed their own heart because they love someone who did. Happy anniversary, everybody.

Quoted @chicagosmayor

Reliable, high-speed internet can be a powerful equalizer. As part of our work to build a more equitable city, we're launching Chicago Connected to provide free high-speed internet service to approximately 100,000 Chicago Public Schools students.

Michelle and I want every kid in Chicago to grow up knowing even better opportunities than we had. We’re happy to help Chicago Connected reach every kid in the city. This is where I found a purpose and a family––and it’ll always be our home.

👉 En exclusiva el expresidente @BarackObama envió un mensaje especial a los hispanos sobre la importancia de salir a votar. #Destino2020

I’m joining my friend @JoeBiden tomorrow to talk about everything that’s at stake in this election. I hope you’ll join us, too. This is a critical moment in our history––and all of us have to do our part to build this country into what we know it can be.

Juneteenth has never been a celebration of victory, or an acceptance of the way things are. It's a celebration of progress. It's an affirmation that despite the most painful parts of our history, change is possible––and there is still so much work to do.

...and now to stand up for those ideals, we have to move forward and elect @JoeBiden and a Democratic Congress that does its job, protects DREAMers, and finally creates a system that’s truly worthy of this nation of immigrants once and for all.

Eight years ago this week, we protected young people who were raised as part of our American family from deportation. Today, I'm happy for them, their families, and all of us. We may look different and come from everywhere, but what makes us American are our shared ideals…

And here are two more essays that powerfully express the hope, heart, grief, and rage that are driving this moment of potential change. Racism Is Terrible. Blackness Is Not: The Trayvon Generation:

These Nashville teenagers are representative of the remarkable leadership we’re seeing from young people across the country and around the world.

Today reminds us that progress might be slow. It might take decades. But no matter what things might look like today, it’s always possible. Happy Pride month, everybody.

This young generation makes me optimistic about our future. By protesting, they’re speaking up and shining a light on injustice––and one way we can support them is to vote for people who’ll change the laws on every level.

In Columbia, Maryland, young people wielded social media to connect across boundaries, amplify voices, and enact some real change.

This group of Nashville teens led a peaceful march with tens of thousands of people in their community.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen young people in every corner of the country step up and become leaders. Through organization and mobilization, they’re showing us how we can sustain this momentum to bring about real change.

It’s too early to tell if it’s permanent, but the changes brought on by COVID-19 are forcing many of us to reflect on what really matters in our lives.
