E-M:/ Clinton in Detroit talking about Global Warming

------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enviro-Mich message from Jacob Stevens Corvidae ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Of possible interest...


President Clinton will address an anticipated sell-out audience with his core message of building community and creating opportunity on Tuesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit.  Titled “Embracing Our Common Humanity” this event will give those in attendance an opportunity to hear one of our generation’s most dynamic speakers.


After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of a global economy. To achieve this, the Clinton Foundation is focused on four critical areas: health security, with an emphasis on HIV/AIDS; economic empowerment; leadership development and citizen service; and racial, ethnic and religious reconciliation.


Elected President of the United States in 1992, and again in 1996, President Clinton was the first Democratic president to win a second term in six decades. Under his leadership, the United States enjoyed the strongest economy in a generation and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. President Clinton’s core values resulted in unprecedented progress for America, including moving the nation from record deficits to record surpluses; the creation of over 22 million jobs —more than any other administration; low levels of unemployment, poverty and crime; and the highest homeownership and college enrollment rates in history.


African American Family Magazine’s Distinguished Speakers Series presents America’s most intellectual, inspirational and informative speakers who engage broad-based audiences by addressing issues such as history, race, literature, economics and education. The series has had notables, such as the late Coretta Scott King, author and poet Maya Angelou, Nobel Laureate and Pulitzer Prize recipient Toni Morrison, and most recently, Sheila Johnson, the world’s first black female billionaire.


“An Evening with President Bill Clinton” is presented by Ford Motor Company and produced by African American Family Magazine. This event is also sponsored by St. John Health System, DTE Energy Foundation, Central Michigan University and Metro Parent Magazine. Partial proceeds from this event will benefit The Yes Foundation, a local 501c3 nonprofit organization that works to promote literacy in Detroit.
