A Shout-Out from Barack Obama and the Obama Foundation

We are proud and humbled to be featured in this video announcing the Obama Foundation’s inaugural summit. In his announcement, President Obama introduced three leaders who exemplify his vision of the future, including Hollaback! executive director and co-founder Emily May!

“What makes me so hopeful and optimistic is that so many of you have shown up, dived in, and embraced the kind of active citizenship that makes our democracy work. . . like Emily May, a New Yorker who’s working to bridge divides by bringing people with diverse views together over the simple joys of a shared meal and honest conversation.”

– President Barack Obama

The People’s Supper

He’s referring to Hollaback!’s collaboration with The Dinner Party and Faith Matters Network on The People’s Supper, an effort to heal wounds and bridge differences in the U.S. at this unprecedented time. Through The People’s Supper, over 1600 people have come together in 58 cities at 265 dinners to break bread and open conversation since the 2016 election.
