Upcoming Guidance for First Lady Michelle Obama

Thursday, January 21

Washington, DC * 11:30AM – As part of the Joining Forces initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver remarks at the 84th Winter Meeting of the United States Conference of Mayors at the Capital Hilton. Mrs. Obama will speak about the Administration's efforts to end veteran homelessness and the importance of mayoral leadership in the process.

In 2010, the Administration set the goal of preventing and ending homelessness among veterans. Through the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness, launched in 2014, more than 800 mayors and other state and local leaders across the country have committed to marshal federal, local, and non-profit efforts to end veteran homelessness in their communities.
