Wednesday Keynote: A Conversation with President Barack Obama
8:30 AM – 10:00 AM | Hall B1, Georgia World Congress Center
Barack H. Obama is the 44th President of the United States.
Few presidents have walked a more improbable path to the White House. Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, Obama was raised with help from his grandparents, whose generosity of spirit reflected their Midwestern roots. The homespun values they instilled in him, paired with his innate sense of optimism, compelled Obama to devote his life to giving every child, regardless of his or her background, the same chance America gave him.

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM | Hall B1, Georgia World Congress Center
Friday Keynote: A Climate Discussion with Jamie Margolin and Dr. Marshall Shepherd
