The White House, Washington
My name is Leah Katz-Hernandez and I say the word "welcome" hundreds of times per day.
It gives me the greatest pride and joy to do that because when I say "welcome" in the West Wing of the White House, as the President’s receptionist, I know that this special place is truly accessible for all. As someone who is deaf, I know that truth deep down in my heart.
Will you allow me the privilege of showing you around?
White House Receptionist Leah Katz-Hernandez gives a tour of the West Wing
When the moment came for me to start my own career as a 21-year-old, I was not afraid to jump onto a campaign to elect "a skinny kid with a funny name." I am deaf and my deafness was not a barrier to my career. Instead, it was a spur to public service. Here's why:
As a toddler, my life changed on July 26, 1990, when the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush. This civil rights legislation helped increase equality for people with disabilities by making discrimination against them based on their disabilities illegal. The Americans with Disabilities Act helped make people with disabilities more visible. It helped make America -- and the American way of life -- more accessible.
And it is with this understanding of my own humanity that I grew up -- with a powerful sense of dignity. I knew that I was not less than another person, just because I am deaf.
I am part of the "ADA Generation" -- the generation that has grown up under the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I am grateful to the advocates who fought so hard to make this civil rights law a reality, improving the lives of millions.
I care deeply about ensuring that everyone’s experience at the White House is as accessible and welcoming as mine. I also know the importance of making disability visible everywhere, whether it's on the streets at curb cuts or here at the White House. That’s why it means so much to me when I see people from all walks of life come in to see the President -- be it a world leader, a school principal, or a service member.
At more than 56 million, we with disabilities make up 19 percent of the American population and are embedded deeply into the fabric of the American society. Our contributions are everywhere, including at the White House. The West Wing is filled with interesting tidbits of disability contributions throughout its history.
The White House is the "People’s House" and I'm proud to say that it is accessible to me and you. So, I hope you'll check out this video and join me on a tour of this special place, and learn more about disability contributions in the West Wing.
Thank you, and welcome,
Leah

In June, I wrote this in a letter to the President:
"I did not vote for you. Either time. I have voted Republican for the entirety of my life. I proudly wore pins and planted banners displaying my Republican loyalty. I was very vocal in my opposition to you -- particularly the ACA. Before I briefly explain my story allow me to first say this: I am so very sorry. I was so very wrong.
"You saved my life. My President, you saved my life, and I am eternally grateful.
"I have a 'pre-existing condition' and so could never purchase health insurance. Only after the ACA came into being could I be covered. Put simply to not take up too much of your time if you are in fact taking the time to read this: I would not be alive without access to care I received due to your law. Thank you for serving me even when I didn't vote for you. Thank you for being my President."
The Affordable Care Act saved my life. I can now say, after several surgeries, that I'm in recovery from what was a serious autoimmune disease. Kicked it to the curb.
Before the Affordable Care Act, I was unable to pay for an incredibly expensive drug that helps to stabilize my condition. So, because I was too poor to pay thousands of dollars for medicine every few weeks, my hospital trips were emergency ones, to keep me from dying. There was absolutely no hope -- and I was quickly running out of money.
Like many fellow patients, I was stuck between paying what I couldn't afford and going without the health care I needed.
Then the President signed this bill. I was against it at first -- very against it. But with the Affordable Care Act, I was finally able to receive the quality of care that had eluded me for years. I was able to consult the top surgeon in my state for the particular surgery I needed. I was able to receive the stabilizing drug that was always hidden behind a doctor's apology: "I'm sorry, Mr. Brown, we have to take your financial considerations into account." I was able to stay at one of the best equipped hospitals in my state for as long as I needed, without having to worry about checking myself out early because of cost concerns. I had hope.
I saw things change after the Affordable Care Act. People who were denied treatment because of exorbitant cost, well, they started to get that treatment. The millions of people who were locked out of health insurance due to pre-existing conditions were finally able to seek medical counsel. Those who were denied access to medications could now take them.
America started to take care of her own.
In just a little bit, President Obama will take the stage to help celebrate Milwaukee's victory in the Healthy Communities Challenge and talk about the progress we've made on health care as a nation.
I'm proud to welcome him to Wisconsin.
Thank you,
Brent

"It has now been more than four months since I nominated Merrick Garland, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit -- and Congress left town for a seven-week recess without giving him a hearing, let alone an up-or-down vote.

Why President Obama is speaking on global development
When President Obama took office, he made global development a core pillar of America's foreign policy -- and for good reason.
When children cannot go to school, or businesses lack reliable roads or electricity, that holds back entire economies. Where poverty and despair take root, conflict, instability, and violent extremism can flourish. Fragile and failing states can incubate or exacerbate a wide range of threats that spill across borders -- from pandemics to nuclear proliferation, human trafficking to climate change.
To President Obama, global development is not "charity." In an increasingly interconnected world, it's a crucial investment in the security and prosperity of us all.
That's what he'll talk about today when he speaks at the White House Summit on Global Development. Tune in at 3:35pm ET to watch live.
White House Global Development Summit
Over the last eight years, the Obama administration has confronted some of the most daunting development and humanitarian challenges in modern history.
The President has helped reshape the U.S. approach to development by partnering with countries, global coalitions, and the engines of American innovation: corporations, foundations, universities, NGOs, and faith-based communities.
Under this leadership, we've produced real outcomes in the lives of millions of people:

We've helped over nine million farmers, food producers, and rural families adopt innovations to improve productivity, helping boost incomes by more than $800 million.

Through President Obama's Power Africa initiative, we've supported 4,300 megawatts worth of projects that are expected to generate over five million new connections to electricity.

Take a deep dive into what global development looks like under President Obama, then tune in at 3:35pm ET to see what else we can do together to continue the progress we are making on behalf of people around the world.

O governo federal quer construir 43 barragens no coração da Amazônia, na bacia do Rio Tapajós. A principal delas poderá alagar quase 400 km² de floresta, equivalente ao tamanho da cidade de Belo Horizonte.
E você sabe o que isso significa? A biodiversidade única desta região será ameaçada, ou seja, espécies em risco de extinção e até mesmo novas espécies, ainda não classificadas pela ciência, que vivem na região, poderão sumir do mapa! Os indígenas do povo Munduruku, que vivem ao longo do rio há gerações, também poderão perder suas casas e seu modo de vida.
E o que podemos fazer para evitar que esse absurdo aconteça?
No momento estamos na terra indígena Sawré Muybu com ativistas e voluntários de várias partes do mundo em solidariedade à luta dos Munduruku pela proteção da floresta e de seu território. Nas próximas semanas vamos sinalizar os limites da área com placas semelhantes às que o governo utiliza na identificação de terras indígenas para falar sobre a importância de demarcar esse território e assim impedir de vez a construção das hidrelétricas.
E você, como pode ajudar?
Entre nesta luta conosco, assine a petição online aqui e juntos pressionaremos o governo a não avançar neste projeto destrutivo que ameaça o coração da Amazônia. Vamos juntos mudar o mundo!
E não esqueça… Fique ligado no nosso site e nas nossas redes sociais onde você encontrará novidades semanalmente sobre o processo de demarcação e sobre outras ações que vamos realizar!

The White House, Washington
In recent days, we have been flooded by requests from Americans asking what we all can do in our day-to-day lives to take on our challenges and maintain the unity brought by grief.
Is there anything more American than that -- ordinary citizens from every corner of the country asking what they can do in their communities? As the President said in Dallas, that’s the America I know -- an America that’s never seen a problem it can’t solve.
Yesterday, the President brought together law enforcement officials, civil rights leaders, activists, faith leaders, academics, and state and local elected officials to discuss these challenges and how we can all take steps together to build trust and ensure justice for all Americans.
And tonight, President Obama will keep the conversation going about the challenges we face -- from racial inequality to how we build trust in our communities.
The President will host a town hall where he’ll hear from officers, parents, students, and families affected by the violence of recent weeks. Participants will raise important questions, search for answers together, and most critically, seek to understand the different realities each of us face. We will all be able to learn a lot from their example.
You can watch the town hall right here -- or on ABC News or ESPN -- tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern.
The conversation and work must continue after the town hall -- and there are a number of things that YOU can do to answer the question we’ve heard so often: "How can I help?"
First, bring back to your community a set of straightforward steps that you can take, right now, to make a difference. There are some solutions outlined by the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. We can honor the courage of our police officers and see the truth of our criminal justice system’s racial inequities – and these solutions are a critical part of that work.
Second, become a mentor. A huge part of our shared work is ensuring that every young person in America knows that as a country, we believe in them.
Third, keep the town hall’s conversation going in your community to build bonds with new people, seek out new viewpoints, and share your stories and examples. As the President has said, "Listen. Engage. If the other side has a point, learn from them."
But as the President also said yesterday in Dallas, the work of healing these divisions requires that we open our hearts to each other, and "see in each other a common humanity, a shared dignity, and recognize how our different experiences have shaped us."
We hope you’ll tune in tonight with an open mind, and bring back ideas to your community. This is going to take all of us.
Thanks for all you do,
Valerie
