CHICAGO Obama for America announces
For All, a campaign initiative designed to engage young Americans between the ages of 18 and 29.
illustrates the shared values of the President and young Americans across the country: that if we work together, we can continue to move this country forward. Working together, we can continue to restore the strongest middle class the world has ever known - the promise that hard work will pay off, responsibility will be rewarded, and that everyone gets a fair shot, does their fair share and plays by the same rules.
Post a Photo
initiative asks supporters to post a photo on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that highlights why we are greater together regardless of race, background, sexual orientation or zip code. The campaign will launch
For All on its Instagram account and asks young people to join in protecting the progress we've made and moving our country forward. These images will be online at www.barackobama.com
It's an easy three step process: 1) write on your right hand what progress means to you, 2) put your hand over your heart for a quick smartphone photo, and 3) tweet using the hashtag # forall. Supporters kicked it off with their own photos asking young people to join them in protecting the progress we've made and moving our country forward.
The collective voices of young people drive this campaign through student to student, peer to peer and neighbor to neighbor outreach, organization and communication about the issues they care about. From expanding access to affordable, quality health care, to ensuring more students can attend college, to standing up for our country's servicemen and women, to advancing equal rights, President Obama has proven time and again that he is committed to issues important to young Americans.
In conjunction with this launch, the campaign will also release a new radio advertisement that highlights what is at stake for young people. The ad will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
