Our founding promise has never been guaranteed. Each generation has been called to bring us a little closer to our highest ideals—and history’s calling on us right now. So let’s all do whatever we can to help @JoeBiden expand that promise to all Americans. https://t.co/5zby4l3W5H
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. https://t.co/05jWocKs17
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. https://t.co/t8ULh2c0P5
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. https://t.co/ofSCxK8cJC
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. https://t.co/diQxk3uFH2
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…
These Nashville teenagers are representative of the remarkable leadership we’re seeing from young people across the country and around the world.
And here are two more essays that powerfully express the hope, heart, grief, and rage that are driving this moment of potential change.

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. https://t.co/ey7p2TgEEf
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.
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. https://t.co/UKnowQM2Lj
This group of Nashville teens led a peaceful march with tens of thousands of people in their community.
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. https://t.co/9qlOdWKAuO
As has always been true at key moments in history, it’s going to depend on young people to go out there and rewrite what is possible.
I couldn’t be prouder of all the young people leading that change right now. Here’s my advice for the Class of 2020: https://t.co/XD2n7LEihk
We’ve seen the power that our voices have when we speak out about injustice––but we also know the toll that it takes on our mental health. Today, I talked to @repjohnlewis, Bryan Stevenson, and @MBK_Alliance activists about ways to keep our mental health a priority at this time. https://t.co/PAsWb607EU
On National Gun Violence Awareness Day, we #WearOrange to honor the victims and survivors of gun violence––which continues to disproportionately harm Black communities. Then keep speaking up, voting, and changing laws across the country.
