About the Obama Legacy Initiative

The Obama Legacy Initiative was created to empower citizens and communities across the nation who wish to honor President Obama’s legacy in ways that are meaningful to them.  We provide technical and media support to legislators, educators, students, community advocates and organizations who wish to name programs or physical spaces such as schools, parks or community centers after President Obama.  

President Obama’s election and presidency symbolized to millions of Americans the progress that our nation has made and the fact that, despite our challenges, Americans can accomplish great things by working together.  Our Board of Directors, comprised of leaders from all walks of life who were personally inspired by the President’s accomplishments, encourages you to learn more about our organization and contact us if we can help you commemorate the Obama legacy in your own community.
