It was a busy week at the Presidential Inaugural Committee. We launched a website dedicated to President-elect Obama’s call to Renew America Together: USAservice.org, and today General Colin Powell gave a press conference announcing the site to the public. In addition, we picked two enthusiastic student essayists, James and Tyrone Coleman, to attend the Inaugural Parade in a special viewing section.
There are 11 days left until Barack Obama takes office. We hope you enjoy your weekend and keep checking back here for official information about the Inauguration.Read More
General Colin Powell formally announced today the Renew America Together initiative as part of President-elect Obama’s national call to service. Standing in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C., Powell exhorted all Americans to make an ongoing commitment to revitalize our local communities, starting on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday is not only a day off but also as it’s been characterized for the last 14 years, it has been a day on. It’s a day to reach out to our fellow citizens in need.
