White House Celebration for a Unified Generation

By Christy White

The White House has announced that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will host "A Celebration of Special Olympics and A Unified Generation" at the White House on the evening of 31 July. The event will celebrate the work that Special Olympics, with the support of the Obama administration and others, has been doing to activate young people to fight inactivity, intolerance and injustice in their schools and communities. Beginning this month, with planned ongoing engagement leading up to our milestone event at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, Special Olympics is challenging the nation and the world to embrace the unique civil rights movement for inclusion, unity and respect that is led by people with intellectual disabilities alongside their peers without intellectual disabilities. The evening will bring together Special Olympics athletes, volunteers and worldwide supporters of the Special Olympics movement.
