Read Former President Barack Obama's Tweets

Michelle and I started the @ObamaFoundation to support the next generation of leaders who are picking up the baton and creating sustainable change in their communities.

On Giving Tuesday, I'm asking you to help keep their work going:

Last month, I spoke with some of the incredible small business leaders working on the South and West sides of Chicago.

As we build the Obama Presidential Center, we’ll work closely with these businesses and hope the Center helps boost economic growth across the city.

One of my favorite White House traditions was telling Thanksgiving jokes – which at least I thought were funny.

Here’s a look back at some of my favorites:

Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving! As we celebrate, let's give thanks for all the blessings in our lives and give back when we can. We’re also thinking of the brave men and women serving our country far from their home.

But voters in some states—including Florida, Texas, and Wisconsin—are still affected by gerrymandering.

That’s why we’ve got to stay in the fight and keep working to stop partisan gerrymandering once and for all. Join us:

Thanks in part to the NDRC, states that were once gerrymandered by Republicans—Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Colorado, Minnesota—are now highly competitive. And that’s how it should be—voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around.

One reason the balance of power in the House of Representatives is so close is because, for the first time in a decade, there were enough competitive districts at play. Thanks to the work of @DemRedistrict, Americans voted on the fairest congressional map of the last 40 years.

I’m inspired by the next generation of leaders—especially those who joined us last week at our @ObamaFoundation Democracy Forum.

Their ideas and insights will help strengthen democracy, and carry it into the future.

Take a look back at our day together:

Best of luck to @USMNT at the World Cup! Michelle and I are incredibly proud of what you’ve accomplished so far, and we’ll be rooting for you all the way.

Happy birthday, @JoeBiden! There’s a lot to celebrate these days, and I couldn’t be more grateful that America has you sitting behind the desk.

Yesterday @BChesky and I had the chance to meet with our inaugural recipients of The Voyager Scholarship.

Michelle, Brian, and I can’t wait to work with these talented young people over the next few years as they pursue careers in public service.

Our @ObamaFoundation Leaders are working hard to tackle some of our toughest challenges. It was great having some of them join @TrevorNoah and me on @TheDailyShow to share more about their work.

I’m happy to announce that we’ll be launching a new and expanded Leaders United States program in the coming months that can help more young people put their idealism to work.

Michelle and I are proud to support these young leaders through our work at the Obama Foundation.

Today at the @ObamaFoundation Democracy Forum, we brought leaders from around the world together to share ideas and discuss ways to strengthen democracy.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi will go down as one of most accomplished legislators in American history—breaking barriers, opening doors for others, and working every day to serve the American people. I couldn’t be more grateful for her friendship and leadership.
