Today's the 5th anniversary of the Whole Foods-anchored Englewood Square, key to eliminating a food desert in Chicago's South Side and spurring similar grocery stores in South Shore, Woodlawn & Bronzeville. Congrats Coleman family and Englewood residents on their grit and vision.
The completion of O’Hare’s runway project sets the foundation for #ORD21 modernization. O’Hare ensures that the world comes to Chicago, and Chicago reaches the world—upholding our global city status now and into the future. Thanks to the workers who made this possible.
Looking forward to seeing Chicago's Footwork, a one-of-a-kind dance style, on the one-of-a-kind #ArtOnTheMart, the largest digital art installation in the world. Once again Chicago is leading in both public art and architecture. Don't miss it! nytimes.com/2021/06/30/art…
We’ve lost a great one, Fritzie Fritzshall, a survivor of Auschwitz and the Holocaust, who not only showed her character by surviving, but in dedicating her life’s work to education about one of humankind’s greatest atrocities through @ihmec. Thank you Fritzie. #NeverForget
Joining Pastor James Brooks and his wife Jackie of Harmony Community Church’s weekly peace gathering tonight in North Lawndale. Thanks for bringing families together to call for a peaceful summer & an end to gun violence in our city, and give our kids the love & safety they need.
Pres. Biden's #AmericanFamiliesPlan will provide universal Pre-K and 2 years of free community college across the nation—an idea that Chicago implemented through the STAR Scholarship and universal Pre-K. No better way to ensure everyone has a chance at the American dream.
While we often found ourselves on different sides of the debate, I grew to have enormous respect for Karen and our regular conversations were a benefit to me and to the City of Chicago. May her memory be a blessing.
Karen Lewis was a tough and tireless champion for public education and for Chicago’s children, one who was never afraid to fight for what she believed in.
We are ready this fall for a new day and it can’t come fast enough.
Six years ago President Obama and Chicago embarked on a journey to find a home for his presidential center. And soon @BarackObama will break ground on a groundbreaking investment that will benefit the South Side, the City of Chicago and the entire country.
Hope and unity in our common destiny is restored. Congratulations President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on this historic day for our country.
Today marks the 5th anniversary of the #ParisAgreement. When the outgoing president dropped the mantle of leadership on climate change, Chicagoans stepped up. The City That Works kept working to close coal plants, curb carbon emissions & create a greener future.
Under a Biden-Harris Administration, we will rejoin the Paris Agreement on day one and lead the world in the fight against climate change.

Congratulations to President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, who will lead for all of America. 🇺🇸
Enrollment tripled in school-based full-day pre-k among Black students & students living in lowest-income neighborhoods after policy changes in Chicago. Read our new research snapshot out today, written in partnership with @NORCNews & @UChiConsortium bit.ly/35omdiS

Every child in every neighborhood deserves an early education. New research shows that following our quality investments in 2013 to expand equitable access to full-day Pre-K, Black students & those from low-income households were 3x more likely to enroll. news.wttw.com/2020/10/21/exp…
Watching the SCOTUS hearings this week has made it crystal clear that if we're going to protect our Supreme Court we need to #FlipTheSenate. But I'm not the only one who thinks Democrats need to win in November—so does @BarackObama. Join him tomorrow: secure.actblue.com/donate/flip-th…
I have been tested for COVID and my results are negative. Sending my care and concern for those who have recently tested positive in the White House, President’s circle and across the country for a full and speedy recovery.
Bravo @ChiPublicHealth! We are so close to realizing a tobacco-free generation. Let’s finish the job, Chicago.
In Chicago, youth smoking rates remain lower than that of the nation thanks to our endless efforts at all levels to fight Big Tobacco from 2014-2019, from raising the purchasing age to 21 & imposing the first big city fee on e-cigarettes, to banning flavored tobacco near schools.
Pete Souza was always there, even when President Obama and I had a snowball fight, bringing a little Chicago life to Washington. We need Pete's viewpoint more than ever, not just behind the lens, but in front of it. Go see this movie. #TheWayISeeIt youtube.com/watch?v=7L4ktH…
Congrats @ChiPubSchools on achieving the highest graduation rate and lowest dropout rate on record, with 36% growth since 2012. Great work to students, teachers, principals and parents. Chicago students proved the naysayers wrong. NYC and LA, game on! twitter.com/chipubschools/…
Hey @MarkMeadows, friendly advice from one Chief of Staff to another. Your boss is President for all of America, not just those who voted for him. But thanks for being honest in how he views his job and how you view yours. twitter.com/meetthepress/s…
Thanks to the artist Santiago Calatrava and Ivanhoé Cambridge, Hines & Levy Family Partners for seeing the project through over the last 2 years & for enriching Chicago’s River Point Park. May all Chicago families enjoy the new public art addition. 👏 hines.com/news/installat…MF
Media: Let Trump and Biden fight the campaign on a level playing field, and let the voters make their own judgments as to who has the capacity, competence and character to lead the country forward. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
The Merlo Branch Library shows what Chicago can do when great neighborhood libraries and great architecture come together. Congrats to Lakeview East residents, @AldTomTunney, Carol Ross Barney and all who played a role in making today a reality. pbcchicago.com/projects/merlo…
Thanks to all the healthcare workers and first responders at Stroger Hospital @CookCtyHealth for doing double duty to respond to both the COVID pandemic and the weekend's violence. Delivering food from Justice of the Pies, a #ChicagoNOF recipient that feeds the body and the soul.
To those who are living with ALS—you’re not alone, and you have a champion here fighting for you. Thank you Brian and Sandra for sharing your story of hope and courage in the face of adversity to #EndALS. Amy and I are with you. @bsw5020 @iamalsorg wired.com/story/life-jus…
Today's #SCOTUS decision is a big win for #DACA & Chicago STAR Scholarship Dreamer students, who can go about their studies free from fear. It’s also the second win in the courts for Chicago’s immigrant & refugee policies, with welcoming city status being the first. Go Dreamers! twitter.com/SCOTUSblog/sta…
Amy and I joined @AldermanHarris and her team to help clean up damage in the South Shore neighborhood at 79th and Stony Island following this weekend's events. We are all in this together. May our city and nation become safer, stronger and more equitable for all who call it home.
Food deserts are new hot spots within a hot spot. Why does Woodlawn, a predominantly African African neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, have a lower Covid-19 mortality rate than Austin? One reason: Access to healthy food. Eliminating food deserts improves health & opportunity. twitter.com/GENmag/status/…
Chemistry is among the most important factors to a ticket's electoral success. When it comes to choosing his running mate, Joe Biden, a former VP himself, will select the person he admires most, trusts most deeply and gets along with best. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
The 7th Circuit’s ruling is a big win for welcoming cities & affirms Chicago’s original Welcoming City Ordinance. Chicago will always be welcoming to immigrants who believe in the American Dream. It’s illegal to withdraw federal support for cities that stand up for their values. twitter.com/wttw/status/12…
We know that their tireless work takes a physical and emotional toll, and while they take care of Chicago, we hope they can take time to care for themselves as well. #frontlineheroes #wegotthis
Today Amy and I packed and delivered @pachasoap basket of #selfcarekits to our frontline workers at @UIHealth, @SwedishChicago Hospital, Stroger Hospital @CookCtyHealth, and Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital @SinaiChicago.
A big Rush thank you to former Chicago mayor @RahmEmanuel, who donated and delivered lunch from @mannysdeli to front-line staff at the Rush University Medical Center Emergency Department.

Let’s keep supporting our #HealthcareHeroes! Delivering @mannysdeli to healthcare workers at @RushMedical and @advocatehealth Masonic Medical Center this morning. Stay strong and thank you for continuing to save lives and care for Chicago during these tough times.
On Friday we delivered lunch to our frontline healthcare workers at @SinaiChicago. Today Amy and I are proud to support @ErieFamHealth, a great community healthcare provider, during this time of need. Let's all find ways to say thank you to our #HealthcareHeroes.
There’s no substitute for federal leadership. If we’re going to make sure that future pandemics do not automatically precipitate an economic depression, Washington needs to step up and be the national leader we expect and need. wsj.com/articles/its-t…
Cities are stepping up to fill a void left by the dysfunction at the national level, but there's no alternative to a national government. I spoke with @ChicagoCouncil President @IvoHDaalder on @_GlobalCities about the age of #COVID19. Watch the video: tinyurl.com/vd7rxc4
Thank you to former Chicago mayor @RahmEmanuel for delivering boxes of sandwiches from Manny’s Deli for @UIHealth staff this morning!

Thanks to our healthcare heroes across the city for their valiant & heroic work to combat #COVID19. Delivering Manny's today to @SinaiChicago, @UIHealth, @UChicagoMed & @NorthwesternMed to lift spirits & provide strength. Love from the Emanuel family, with thanks to @mannysdeli.
Want to learn how cities are responding to the pandemic? Join @RahmEmanuel and me for an online discussion of this important issue. Today. At 11:00 CT/12:00 ET. Details here: bit.ly/3ahXuOv

Let’s make sure this crisis doesn’t go to waste. This should be the last time a public health emergency provokes an economic depression. We need to prepare for tomorrow—by investing in our public health, infrastructure & supply chain. Stay safe & healthy. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
Glad to hear it. Stay safe and healthy Woodlawn. twitter.com/stevedaniels27…
“Innovation at this site will put Chicago at the forefront of a burgeoning holistic health & wellness industry, contribute $1.8BN to Chicago’s economy over 20 years & directly address local health challenges, including Chicago’s 30-year life expectancy gap.”
Thanks to my friends at @SHEBA_ from our 2017 visit for seeing this through to the end and for finally giving the Michael Reese site a new future consistent with its medical past. chicago.suntimes.com/2020/3/12/2117…
I have a better idea. Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, nominated by this President, should recuse themselves on any cases related to Trump. washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/02…
Congrats to @GovPritzker on taking a big step forward in making the original vision a reality. Go Illini! chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-poli…
