Michelle Obama and Public Allies

“Public Allies was my favorite job. I meet Allies and Alums all over the country and they are doing amazing things and I know the future is bright,” she told the group. “It was at Public Allies that I first understood that I would always be ‘becoming.'”

– Former First Lady Michelle Obama

Alum Spotlight

Abel Núñez was the first person in his family to speak English, and as a result, from a very early age he was often asked to translate for his family. Fast-forward decades later, and Abel — who arrived in the U.S. with his family from El Salvador in 1979 — continues to be a vital bridge between recent immigrants and the larger community. For his work, including rising up to become executive director of CARECEN, an immigrant rights group in Washington, D.C., Abel was recently awarded Georgetown University’s John Thompson Jr. Legacy of a Dream Award at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
