WE DID IT NORTH LAWNDALE! WE MADE THE CUT!!!!

The Obama Foundation announced the four finalists today; The Universities of Chicago, Illinois (UIC) and Hawaii, along with Columbia University in New York. For anyone who does not know, WE approached UIC to have a university component. We formed a partnership, now we are finalists!

Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”

Presidential Library

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.
From the beginning, developing a sense of pride in this and similar communities across the country was what our efforts were all about.

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.
From the beginning, developing a sense of pride in this and similar communities across the country was what our efforts were all about.
There is no doubt that physically, geographically and demographically, North Lawndale has the superior site and has a probable chance of winning the Library bid.
A grand Library campus built in a poor community will bring new investments and people, but what about the people here now? Without a sense of accomplishment, where is the sense of ownership? Where is the sense of pride?
North Lawndale’s site was not chosen from outside of the community. Our site submission was developed by the community. The University of Illinois did not approach us; we approached them with our fully researched site. This is the result of a community’s efforts.
When we win the Library (and we will), North Lawndale needs to know that it can say, “We did that!”
