Here’s Video of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Speech from our 2014 National Conference
August 11, 2014
During our last conference, we had a phenomenal lineup of speakers: the new Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, and of course First Lady Michelle Obama herself.
We were so honored to host such respected and influential national figures, and so heartened that they would stand with us in our commitment to end homelessness.
Even before conference was over, attendees and other people following the conference over social media were already clamoring for us to make video of the speakers’ remarks available online. So that’s what exactly what we’re doing this month.
Today, we’re sharing the video of the first lady’s remarks. She has assumed a prominent role in the fight to end veteran homelessness and appeared at our conference as part of the Joining Forces initiative to support our nation’s military families.
You can find the full text of her remarks on the White House website. Stay tuned to the blog over the following weeks for more videos from the conference!
