Tell President Obama and the First Lady that you want the Obama Presidential Library to come to the South Side. 

  • To: President Obama and the First Lady

    The Obama Presidential Library offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the South Side and for all of Chicago. The South Side is the best location for an institution that will spur economic development, inspire young people, and honor President Obama’s legacy.

    • 1900 permanent new jobs
    • 3,300 construction jobs
    • 800,000 annual visitors
    • $220 million total annual revenue
    • 40 new businesses

    Please bring the Obama Presidential Library to the South Side of Chicago!

Thank you for your support!
