My fellow Americans,

It's a long-standing tradition for the sitting president of the United States to leave a parting letter in the Oval Office for the American elected to take his or her place. It's a letter meant to share what we know, what we've learned, and what small wisdom may help our successor bear the great responsibility that comes with the highest office in our land, and the leadership of the free world.
But before I leave my note for our 45th president, I wanted to say one final thank you for the honor of serving as your 44th. Because all that I've learned in my time in office, I've learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.


Throughout these eight years, you have been the source of goodness, resilience, and hope from which I've pulled strength. I've seen neighbors and communities take care of each other during the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. I have mourned with grieving families searching for answers -- and found grace in a Charleston church.


I've taken heart from the hope of young graduates and our newest military officers. I've seen our scientists help a paralyzed man regain his sense of touch, and wounded warriors once given up for dead walk again. I've seen Americans whose lives have been saved because they finally have access to medical care, and families whose lives have been changed because their marriages are recognized as equal to our own. I've seen the youngest of children remind us through their actions and through their generosity of our obligations to care for refugees, or work for peace, and, above all, to look out for each other.


I've seen you, the American people, in all your decency, determination, good humor, and kindness. And in your daily acts of citizenship, I've seen our future unfolding.


All of us, regardless of party, should throw ourselves into that work -- the joyous work of citizenship. Not just when there's an election, not just when our own narrow interest is at stake, but over the full span of a lifetime.
I'll be right there with you every step of the way.

And when the arc of progress seems slow, remember: America is not the project of any one person. The single most powerful word in our democracy is the word 'We.' 'We the People.' 'We shall overcome.'

Yes, we can.
President Barack Obama

Organizing for Action
Sula --

Here's where we were eight years ago, when President Obama took office:

Our economy was rapidly heading toward a second Great Depression, as millions of Americans lost their homes and millions more saw their hard-earned savings vanish. We were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs each month.

Families across the country were being denied health coverage because they had previously gotten sick, or had already hit a limit on their care -- or the rapidly rising costs of care simply put it out of reach.

Our country's carbon pollution was projected to increase indefinitely.

And Americans didn't have the right to marry -- or even serve openly in the military -- just because of who they loved.

But it's always been true of the American spirit to rise to meet our challenges. Millions of people were inspired to fight for a better tomorrow -- and this is where we are today:

We bounced back from recession and have seen the longest streak of total job growth in U.S. history -- our economy has added 15.8 million private-sector jobs since February 2010.

Thanks to Obamacare, 20 million Americans have gained quality, affordable health care, as our country's uninsured rate has fallen to its lowest level ever.

We're leading on climate change. President Obama finalized the Clean Power Plan, the first-ever national carbon pollution standards for power plants. And just a few months ago, nearly 200 countries came together to adopt the Paris Climate Agreement, the most ambitious global climate agreement ever created.

Our country took a big step forward in the fight for equality for all, as LGBT Americans in all 50 states gained the right to marry who they love.

Let that sink in. We've made lasting strides toward a more perfect union. Together, we're capable of making big things happen.

But none of these achievements happened by themselves. They took work from people like you, who put in extra hours, had uncomfortable conversations, shared something that mattered, and chipped in whatever you could to make change a reality.

Now, more than ever, we can't afford to be cynical or wait on the sidelines. As the last eight years have shown, this work matters -- a lot. We've got to protect the progress we've made, and to keep fighting to make our country as tolerant, optimistic, and inclusive as it can be. It's up to us.

So today, take a moment to reflect on what we've achieved together -- and then gear up for the fights ahead.
