Weekly Wrap Up: “Let Freedom Ring”

 

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington: On Wednesday, President Obama spoke from the Lincoln Memorial at the “Let Freedom Ring” Ceremony, which commemorated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. President Obama was joined by former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, along with members of the King family, civil rights leaders, and other dignitaries. Thousands converged from across the country to join in this historic event. In his remarks, President Obama honored the heroes that marched in 1963, but stressed that while the nation has come far in the past fifty years, there is still work to be done.

 

But we would dishonor those heroes as well to suggest that the work of this nation is somehow complete. The arc of the moral universe may bend towards justice, but it doesn’t bend on its own. To secure the gains this country has made requires constant vigilance, not complacency.

 

In recognition of the historic March on Washington, Administration officials wrote blog posts reflecting on what the civil rights movement meant for the country, the urgency of continuing that march, and what lies ahead.

 

For more information, check out six videos that capture our favorite moments of the President with icons of the Civil Rights Movement.

 

 

“The Powerbroker” Screening: A day before the President spoke at the Lincoln Memorial, First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a screening of “The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights,” a documentary detailing the life and achievements of the civil rights leader. The First Lady also spoke to a group of students who attended the screening.

 

The thing I want you all to remember, as you watch this film, is that we are here because of that struggle.  I’m here because of that struggle. And even though you may think you have some struggles, your paths are a whole lot easier because of the work these men and women did.

 

 

Women’s Equality Day: Tuesday was Women’s Equality Day, which commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment and celebrates advocates like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Ida B. Wells, who devoted their lives to ensuring that women would have a voice in democracy. In advance of Women’s Equality Day, the President visited Seneca Falls, New York during his college affordability bus tour, where the first Women’s Right Convention was held in 1848. President Obama presented the Women’s Rights National Historic Park with a copy of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, the first bill he signed into law, which makes it easier for women to bring forward pay discrimination claims.

 

 

Medal of Honor Ceremony: Also on Tuesday, the President presented the Medal of Honor to Army Staff Sgt. Ty M. Carter. Carter was one of 53 Americans stationed at a remote outpost in Afghanistan when it came under attack by more than 300 Taliban fighters. The President recognized Carter’s courage and strength, both on the battlefield and in speaking openly and honestly about his struggle with Post-Traumatic Stress.

 

 

ATF Director Sworn-In: Vice President Joe Biden swore-in B. Todd Jones as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on Thursday. The Vice President also announced two new executive actions to reduce gun violence, building on the gun violence reduction plan he and the President presented at the beginning of this year.

 

 

Appointment of new U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan: On Wednesday, President Obama appointed Ambassador Donald Booth as the new U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan. Ambassador Booth will play a vital role in supporting peace between these two nations.

Earlier this week, as part of a series of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, I attended the White House Ladders of Opportunity Forum. As I responded to questions about inequality, housing, jobs, and a host of other issues that affect the middle class and those striving to reach the middle class, I got a couple of questions that come up frequently in the course of my work. The first question was about how the current immigration debate affects these economic issues. And the second was from an African immigrant wondering what a new immigration law might mean for her.

 

There’s a reason that President Obama describes immigration reform as an economic imperative, and now that the Senate has passed a bill with a strong bipartisan vote, we can actually measure what the economic impact of this bill will be. The numbers are impressive: the Senate-passed immigration bill would:

 

  • Strengthen the overall economy and grow U.S. GDP by 3.3 percent in 2023 and 5.4 percent in 2033 – an increase of roughly $700 billion in 2023 and $1.4 trillion in 2033 in today’s dollars.
  • Increase real wages by 0.5 percent in 2033 relative to current law – the equivalent of about an annual $250 increase today for a median household.
  • Reduce the federal deficit by nearly $850 billion over the next 20 years.

 

It’s clear that immigration reform fits squarely in the President’s agenda to make sure that policymakers in Washington do everything they can to build a better bargain for the middle class, growing our economy in a way that ensures that we all benefit.

Climate Name Change

Since 1954, the World Meteorological Organization has been naming extreme storms after people. But we propose a new naming system. One that names extreme storms caused by climate change, after the policy makers who deny climate change and obstruct climate policy. If you agree, sign the petition at http://www.climatenamechange.org/#/pe…

  1. I think he is correct on all counts, using chemical weapons is not something to take lightly. And who knows where that could escalate, plus what about the others who have boasted they have chemical weapons, if we turn away from this – terrible message. Not to mention we’ve just turned away from a massacre that keeps escalating that is more of a slaughter.

    • I am thrilled by what Barack did today in the Rose Garden.

      1). He threw military action on the head of a do nothing 113th CongrASS, and got that 5000 lb. monkey off his back. He can now wait for CongrASS to act or not act, and then when they finish thumbing their anuses, he can then make whatever move he desires, which I’m betting will be no action at all. He has the right/power to act without Congressional approval but is giving this jack ass CongrASS to make further fools of themselves.

      2). Barack is a diplomat and a master Chess playa and he is 12 moves ahead of the world & 24 moves ahead of this dumbass CongrASS. He knows if he attacks Syria, he;ll be the villain worldwide because many many more world citizens are sick & tired of War. Period. He could not have done a more classical move if he tried.
