First Lady Michelle Obama to Address 2014 Graduating Seniors

This year, First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver commencement addresses at Dillard University, an assembly of high schools in the Topeka, Kansas Public School District, and the District of Columbia College Access Program (DC-CAP). All of these institutions are supporting the First Lady’s higher education initiative and doing their part to answer the President’s call to ensure that by the year 2020, America once again has the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

The First Lady will deliver remarks at Dillard University because of its legacy as one of America’s top historically black universities; she will address high school students in Topeka, Kansas – home of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown vs. Board of Education – which will celebrate its 60thanniversary the same day as the First Lady’s remarks; and she will deliver remarks at the Graduation Celebration of the DC College Access Program (DC-CAP) to highlight the important work that CAP is doing to ensure that first  generation, low income students are graduating from high school ready to pursue a higher degree.

The commencement addresses will be open press, but space is limited. Members of the media who wish to cover the commencements must RSVP directly to the contacts listed below.

Dillard University on Saturday, May 10 at 10:00 AM (Central)

First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address to the class of 2014 at Dillard University in New Orleans, LA on Saturday, May 10 at 10:00 AM Central.

Academically, Dillard is listed on: Forbes’ 2013 list of Top Colleges and Universities in the U.S., top 60 liberal arts institutions by the Washington Monthly (2013), and is consistently one of U.S News and World Report’s top Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  The University has been fully engaged in the economic development of the Gentilly community in which it is located as well as the city of New Orleans.  Dillard University partners with 12 community organizations, businesses and local schools in implementing such projects as home buyer workshops, community health fairs, edible gardens and water sustainability. Its Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Center also partners with local health institutions to study and address diseases such as diabetes, obesity and colon cancer, which are common to underserved individuals in the New Orleans community.

High Schools in the Topeka, KS Public School District on May 17 at 1:00 PM (Central)

First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address to graduating seniors from high schools in the Topeka, KS Public School District on May 17 at 1:00 PM Central.  Topeka Public Schools is located in the capital city of Kansas and is the home of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown v.

DC-CAP provides student and parent college readiness counseling starting in 9th grade helping families navigate the college application and financial aid process throughout the high school years. DC-CAP also provides integral support and financial assistance for students while in college. Since DC-CAP’s inception in 1999, the program has played a critical role in helping to double the number of students enrolling in college and tripling the number who graduate in DC.  The event is an opportunity to applaud their achievement and honor their families who supported them.

En el mensaje de esta semana, la Directora del Consejo de Política Doméstica de la Casa Blanca Cecilia Muñoz habla sobre el presupuesto del Presidente que ampliará las oportunidades para todos, incluyendo a millones de familias hispanas.

 

 

 

 

In this week’s address, the President highlighted the important differences between the budget he’s put forward — built on opportunity for all — and the budget House Republicans are advocating for, which stacks the deck against the middle class.

While the President is focused on building lasting economic security and ensuring that hardworking Americans have the opportunity to get ahead, Republicans are advancing the same old top-down approach of cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans and slashing important investments in education, infrastructure, and research and development

While Marketplace Enrollment Ended, Medicaid Enrollment Continues

 

 

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has already provided coverage to millions of Americans. More than 7.1 million Americans signed up for coverage through the Marketplaces, 3 million additional young adults were covered under their parents’ insurance and millions more will have access through Medicaid. A new report shows that more people are gaining coverage through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) as a result of the health law. The analysis, produced by the Health and Human Services Department shows enrollment in Medicaid and CHIP in February was at least 3 million people higher than it was, on average, between July and September. That does not include March, which saw an enormous spike in Marketplace enrollment and traffic to HealthCare.gov.

 

While this is great progress, states where governors or legislatures refuse to implement the Medicaid expansion provisions of the law will leave 5.7 million Americans uninsured. States that have expanded Medicaid, such as Kentucky and New York, have seen particularly dramatic declines in their uninsured populations. Just take Kentucky, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Kentucky has seen a 40 percent drop in its rate of uninsured since October 1.

From The Sanders Firm: THE MIRIAM CAREY FAMILY REACTS TO THE AUTOPSY REPORT. What If Miriam Carey Had Been White?

Six months have passed since Ms. Miriam Carey was brutally gunned down in Washington D.C. by Capitol Hill police and The Secret Service, while her 18 month old child was strapped in the backseat in a baby carrier.

 

The following is a post by The Sanders Firm:

THE CAREY FAMILY REACTS TO THE AUTOPSY REPORT

 

NEW YORK, April 4, 2014 – Yesterday, after six months of “utter” silence by government officials, the Carey Family received the final Autopsy Report for their beloved Miriam Iris Carey. After a careful analysis, the report supports their original hypothesis the shooting of their beloved Miriam was “NOT JUSTIFIED.”

 

Important Facts from the Report

• Miriam was in “good health”
• Miriam was not under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
• Miriam died from multiple gunshot wounds
• Miriam was shot from the back to the front, meaning all shots entering her body were fired while her back was turned, the locations indicate she was moving away from the officers; and
• Miriam sustained one shot to the back of her head

 

“The authorities knew since October 10, 2013, despite popular misinformation, Miriam had no alcohol or other drugs in her system debunking mental illness theory and they also knew since December 5, 2013, Miriam was shot multiple times about her body including her head and back,” says Eric Sanders.

 

With these latest government revelations, the Carey Family is understandably upset.

 

Important Facts About Use of Force Federal Agencies

Metropolitan Police General Order No.: RAR 901.07 Section IV (A)(2) No member of the Metropolitan Police Department shall discharge his/her firearm under the following circumstances… “At or from a moving vehicle unless deadly force is being used against the officer or another person. For purposes of this order, a moving vehicle is not considered deadly force. Members shall, as a rule, avoid tactics that could place them in a position where is vehicle could be used against them. (CALEA 1.3.4)”

 

“It stands to reason using simple logic, if the Metropolitan Police prohibits shooting at moving vehicles, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and United States Capitol Police follows the CALEA standard as well, says Sanders.

 

CALEA is the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. Members organizations includes the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA); and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

 

“We continue to call for the criminal prosecution of all employees involved from the United States Secret Service – Uniform Division and United States Capitol Police, for the United States Department of Justice to prosecute all employees involved for violating the civil rights of our beloved Miriam and for the immediate termination of all employees involved,” says Valarie Carey spokesperson for the Carey Family.

 

Valarie Carey, who is representing the interests of the Carey Family, filed a wrongful death claim on January 30, 2014, against the United States of America, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and the United States Capitol Police seeking$75 million dollars on behalf of The Estate of Miriam Iris Carey, Mother Idella Carey and minor child EF to compensate them for their great loss of a daughter, mother, friend and confidant.

 

“While the criminal probe is pending, the United States Congress using its legislative powers must investigate Miriam’s death. Miriam’s death is symbolic of the growing problem of police using excessive force against the citizenry throughout our nation. With respect to Miriam’s death, it is in the public’s interest to ensure our government acted responsibly not only from a criminal or a civil perspective but from an internal agency perspective. It is also in the public’s interest avoid a similar tragedy in the future,” says Sanders.

The sisters of Miriam Carey say, “It just doesn’t seem real!”

 

Miriam Carey was shot to death on October 4th, 2013 after first trying to ram her car through a White House barricade then leading Capitol police through a high-speed chase. It ended near the Capitol in a hail of bullets.

 

 

Carey’s sisters spoke with reporters in Brooklyn, New York Friday night after returning from Washington following the grim task of identifying their loved one’s body. They said they were “still very confused as to why Miriam is not alive.”

 

They told reporters gathered in front of their Bedford Stuyvesant home the the shooting of their unarmed sister by Capitol police was “unjustified.”

 

The sisters also spoke about being gravely concerned that Carey’s infant daughter was in the back seat during the entire incident. Police say Carey’s daughter was not seriously harmed and was placed in protective custody. Her whereabouts right now, are unknown to the family.

 

Amy Carey-Jones said that she believed her sister was struggling with postpartum depression, but could not explain the depths of her mental condition that could have lead to that fatal confrontation.

 

Federal investigators in Washington told reporters Friday that Miriam Carey had been under the delusion that President Obama was communicating with her and had her home city of Stamford, CT under “lock down.”  But back in Brooklyn Friday night, Carey-Jones said, “We don’t know why Miriam ended up going to DC, we don’t know if her depression contributed to her taking that ride.”

 

As far as the family could determine, Carey has no political agenda that might have prompted the incident.

 

Earlier Friday evening during an interview on CNN, Carey–Jones said, “There wasn’t a pattern [of mental instability]. It was something that occurred suddenly. She seemed overwhelmed. There was a lot of stress.” She challenged earlier reports that her sister showed outward signs of  severe mental stress early on.  “There were not moments of her walking around with delusions. That was not what was going on.”

 

She insisted that her sister was making progress with the help of counseling and medications. ”My sister was experiencing postpartum depression with psychosis, that was her diagnosis. She once had experienced a momentary break down that needed emergency care but got help and dealt with that.  She had challenges as a new parent but we always spoke closely with her as parents and was dealt with it as a family.”

 

In that interview, Carey-Jones said her sister recently told her that her doctors said she did not need medications anymore and, “They tapered her off the medications and she felt fine.”

 

The sisters would not say what medications Miriam Carey was prescribed. The Careys described their sister as a “vibrant” woman who had everything to live for, especially the love she showed toward her infant daughter. They said their sister, a professional dental hygienist, loved her work and wanted to teach, “To further give back to the field,” Carey-Jones said.

 

The family is questioning whether the only way to end the chase was by shooting their unarmed sister to death. One of the sisters, Valarie Carey, is a former New York City police officer. The family said they will conduct their own investigation.

 

“My sister just totally didn’t deserve this,” said Valarie Carey, “There are going to be a lot of different stories being told by people that claim they may know her. They don’t. She was a law-abiding citizen.”

 

In Brooklyn Friday night, Carey-Jones  told reporters, “We believe that law enforcement could have handled things differently.” She went on to  say, “Unfortunately, if someone does have a crisis, a moment of instability, how do people put in place to protect, how do they help you, how can they contain the situation and and give you the help that you deserve?”

 

The family’s position is the fatal shooting of Miriam Carey was “not justified.”

 

 

U.S. Capitol On Lockdown After Reports Of Gun Shots

 

At least a dozen gunshots were fired when she tried to flee cops, who  had trapped her two blocks from the Capitol. She was believed to have been hit several times. Does it really take a dozen gunshots at an un-armed Black woman with a child in the backseat, to stop her car?

There was no weapon in the woman’s car and she carried no ID. ALL This for one un-armed Black mother with her child in the backseat.

Miriam Carey’s Sisters Speak Out And Say “She Wasn’t Crazy Or Stalking Obama”

 

Miriam Carey’s sisters, Amy Carey Jones and Valarie Carey, tell TODAY’s Matt Lauer that their sister was not delusional and never talked critically about President Obama. They believe Miriam was frightened after being surrounded by police near the White House last week and that her speeding off was a way to flee the confusion.

 

WHY was MIRIAM CAREY Chased and EXECUTED by POLICE

 

 

 

 

Published on Jan 9, 2014

On October 3, 2013 Miriam Carey was murdered by police officers and Secret Service in Washington, DC. While being accused of “ramming” a White House gate, the 2010 black Infiniti car Miriam Carey drove did NOT have front end damage nor did the airbags deploy. The most she may have been guilty of was a traffic infraction which is NOT justification for killing her.

 

Miriam Carey was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting AND KILLING. Miriam was not only a productive law abiding citizen, she was a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. A 34 year old mother with great potential and full of life whom her daughter Erica will never get to know personally. There was also another person that is now missing from the scene which we have every reason to believe has been kidnapped and possibly held hostage by U S government forces or even murdered. It was originally reported she was taken into custody.

 

Why this entire incident has happened remains a mystery. Some have suggested that Miriam was trying to contact President Obama to tell him her child was his, and Obama had told her to come to the white house to meet him there. At the time of the incident there was a police drill or exercise going on and many police were present. Possibly a set up to execute Miriam and silence her. It has been reported that the Sisters and family of Miriam are asking for a DNA test to be done to find out the identity of the Father. It is reported that the child was swooped away and is being raised by unknown persons while the Miriam sisters and family are not being offered custody or explanations.

 

Innocent Americans MUST NOT be gunned down by police because they commit a traffic violation or because they are afraid to stop their car while being fired upon by police. Miriam was first fired upon BEFORE ANY CAR CHASE OCCURRED. The actual murder took place after they shot at her for driving 100 feet when asked to stop, no high speed chase had ensued at all. They simply fired at her. If someone was firing weapons at you, would you stop and exist into the gun fire? Would a sane person probably keep driving? It is noted that she drove TOWARD the safety of more police not away! Stand up America. It is Time to Speak up for our rights!

 

 

Police State Conditioning: Miriam Carey DC Unarmed Driver Executed

 

Published on Oct 5, 2013

According to authorities, On Thursday, October 3, 2013, Miriam Carey “rammed” a couple of checkpoints near the White House entrance. She then sped away and was chased by police officers who then shot her dead while her 18 month old daughter was in the vehicle. She was unarmed, yet the Congress and the mainstream media have praised the “heroic” action by police in their killing this erratically-driving mother. This is the definition of police state. Everyone living in so much manufactured fear that they will praise the killing of any “terrorist” that steps out of line in any form or fashion.

 

 

 

I am not a conspiracy theorist by any stretch of any imagination. I am a man who believes in facts & truth. The truth is once the child was removed from the Black Lexus, there was no reason to continue shooting at this vehicle. If a trained law enforcement professional is shooting at a target and NO RETURN FIRE is coming from said target….there IS NO REASON TO CONTINUE FIRING.

 

The facts is There was no weapon in the woman’s car, therefore she could not have returned fire or fired first at Washington D.C. law enforcement.

 

That FACT makes the Death Of Miriam Carey, an EXECUTION.

 

But Ms. Miriam Carey is just another Black human life taken, so what does it really matter. Right.

 

 

What If Miriam Carey Had Been White?

 

I know how Miriam Carey wound up dead. But, would she be dead if she was in a White female body with a neatly dressed White child in the backseat?

 

There is no around-the-clock news coverage of Miriam Carey. Imagine if it was a woman with White skin. We all would become semi-professionals in diagnosing postpartum. But, that’s not happening. The media is treating this story the same way they treat all single Black mother—with steadfast disregard.

 

What If Miriam Carey Had Been White?

Main Stream Media Is NOT Reporting On The Patient Protection And Affordable Care Act (ObamaCARES) Surge Or The 6.5 Million Total Enrollment = Reich Wing Media Blackout.

From The New York Times:

 

The ACA Surge Blackout

 

By PAUL KRUGMAN

 

Update: And the 4th-ranking Republican in the Senate is already accusing the administration of cooking the books. I really think the possibility that the ACA might actually work never occurred to them.

It’s not in itself that big a deal, but I’m somewhat amazed by what amounts to a de facto blackout by major news media on a developing story that’s really obvious if you read the invaluable Charles Gaba, or even the White House blog: a huge surge in Obamacare enrollments in the final days of the signup period. The print sources I read are still putting out basically downbeat reports about the ACA, with maybe a mention 10 paragraphs in that exchange enrollments passed the 6 million mark last week. I don’t watch cable news, but from what I hear it’s all still Malaysian airways.

In the end, I guess it won’t matter in a direct sense; the final number for year 1, which looks likely to be very close to the original 7 million projection, will eventually come out. But you wonder why news media that are happy to speculate about the 2016 election aren’t interested in at least putting out a heads-up about the strong possibility of a bombshell number next week.

And where I think this does matter is that it shows a persistent slant in much reporting toward emphasizing the negatives about health reform. The website woes were, and deserved to be, a big story; the quite amazing comeback somehow doesn’t fit the preferred narrative, and is being ignored — and this despite the fact that, as Gaba notes, it offers great visuals too.

The #ACASurge Continues: Here’s Where I Was Today

 

 

I saw it firsthand today: The surge of folks across the country getting covered ahead of the March 31 deadline is continuing.

Today, I stopped by a D.C. Health Link faith-based enrollment event — put on by a community that’s played a key role in efforts to educate and enroll District residents, small businesses, and their employees.

It was really inspiring to see — and it was just one of hundreds of events happening around the country this weekend.

Take a look at a couple photos from that event — and a few more from events happening this weekend. If you’re getting covered yourself, share a photo of your own.

And, of course, if you still need coverage, visit HealthCare.gov right now and get yourself signed up.

Photos: This is What an #ACASurge Looks Like

 

 

The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami — where trained workers have signed up 25,000 of their fellow Floridians since November. It was standing-room-only at a center in Houston yesterday.

 

The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they’re covered.

 

This is what momentum looks like.

 

Take a look at some of the photos folks are sending in from events around the country — and if you like, share one of your own.

 

And if you still need health insurance, go to HealthCare.gov right now, submit an application, and get yourself signed up.

“The bottom line is I’m going to need you, and the country needs you. And a lot of your friends and peers, they may not know that they need you, but if something happens somewhere down the road where they really need to get to a hospital or a doctor, the fact that you have talked to them and gotten them involved is going to make all the difference in the world.” — President Obama, 12/4/2013

Get Your Popcorn Ready! It’s the First Ever White House Film Festival

The First Ever White House Student Film Festival 

Earlier this month, President Obama made his first movie on a trip to Buck Lodge Middle School in Adelphi Maryland. And on Friday, although we’re not showing the President’s movie,  we might be showing yours.

 

On Friday, February 28, the White House is hosting the first-ever Student Film Festival, featuring the work of more than a dozen young filmmakers who created short films celebrating the role of technology in the classroom.

 

The Filmmaker-in-Chief was at Buck Lodge to celebrate progress on ConnectED, an ambitious project to connect 99% of American students to next-generation broadband and wireless technology within five years. In Adelphi, he announced that some of America’s largest companies answered the President’s call to action towards that goal by pledging more than $750 million in commitments to deliver cutting-edge technologies to classrooms, including devices, free software, teacher professional development, and home wireless connectivity.

 

Building on the President’s eagerness to connect students to technology, and his newfound interest in filmmaking, we’re excited to host the first-ever White House Student Film Festival. In November, we called for K-12 students around the country to create short films on the role of technology in their classroom, and students responded with nearly 3,000 entries. In collaboration with the American Film Institute, the White House will screen the finalists’ works this Friday along with a star-studded cast including Kal Penn, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Conan O’Brien.

 

In addition to the celebration of the student films and the President’s remarks, FOX and National Geographic Channel will treat the attendees to a sneak peek of the first episode of the upcoming television series, “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,”  which celebrates the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

 

We hope you share the President’s excitement for film-making, and his desire to give all American students the tools they need to stay on the cutting edge.

Manufacturing Innovation Institutes: Putting America at the Forefront of 21st Century Manufacturing

Today President Obama announced two new public-private manufacturing innovation institutes – one in Chicago and one in the Detroit area — as well as a competition for the first of four additional institutes that will will boost advanced manufacturing in the United States and attract the types of high-quality jobs that a growing middle class requires.

 

“For generations of Americans, manufacturing was the ticket to a good, middle-class life. The stuff we made – like steel and cars and planes – is what made America what it is,” President Obama said. “But advances in technology allowed manufacturers to do more with less, and global competition meant a lot of good manufacturing jobs went overseas.”

 

Today, our manufacturing industry is adding jobs — more than 620,000 over the last four years. “But the economy has changed,” President Obama said. “And if we want to attract more good manufacturing jobs to America, we’ve got to make sure we’re on the cutting edge of new manufacturing techniques and technologies.”

 

That’s what these new hubs are all about. They’re partnerships – they bring together companies and universities to develop cutting-edge technology, train workers to use that technology, and make sure research is turned into real-world products made by American workers.

 

Each institute serves as a regional hub, bridging the gap between applied research and product development by bringing together companies, universities and other academic and training institutions, and federal agencies to co-invest in key technology areas that encourage investment and production in the United States.

 

This type of “teaching factory” provides a unique opportunity for education and training of students and workers at all levels, while providing the shared assets to help companies, most importantly small manufacturers, access the capabilities and equipment to design, test, and pilot new products and manufacturing processes.
