Obama Campaign Launches ‘Parents For Obama’ Website

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

This post was written by Parents Deputy Editor Diane Debrovner.

Obama for America has introduced Parents for Obama, a new website and organizing tool to help tell President Obama’s story to mothers and fathers. The site outlines his past accomplishments for families—including stats and facts about health care, education, tax cuts, and the environment—along with blog posts from parents about why they are a Parent for Obama.

Parents for Obama also introduced a new video from the First Lady about what it’s like to be a parent in the White House and why she and the President are fighting for parents and families in this election.

Parents can use the site’s Dashboard tool to get involved with the campaign, and to connect with other parents in their community or around the country. There are opportunities to host a house party, attend local events, and make calls to discuss the issues with undecided voters. The campaign appreciates the fact that many moms are still undecided, and that they are looking to other women like them in order to decide how to vote in November.

Be sure to follow our own three Moms Decide guest bloggers, who will be offering their diverse views on the election and the issues that matter most to them and their families.

Obamas Share New Family Picture

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

The First Family sat for an official family photograph this week–the first such photo taken since 2009.  The family took the photo “because the girls have grown up so much since then,” a White House press spokesperson said in an email to reporters.

The portrait of President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their daughters Malia and Sasha was taken in the Oval Office last Sunday after the family attended church.
