When Maria, Julia, and Yomi met at the #ObamaTownHall Europe, they discovered they were all working towards equality for women in different sectors in Greece, France, and Sweden. While their work is different, they connected over what guides them: a vision and a mission to see women fully standing in their power. (Left to Right: Julia Mouzon, France, is the Founder of Elues Locales,  a network that supports women working in local governments through programming and relationship building; Maria Gianniou, Greece, is the co-founder of Women Act to empower women to fully embrace their political, social, cultural and economic potential; Yomi Abiola, Sweden, is the Founder of The Fem League to transform the narrative of women in the world through media.)

“We all have a role to play in changing the narrative around substance use disorders and addiction in general. Important work like this is rarely easy, but if we do everything we can to see these conditions as chronic health issues as opposed to moral failings or choices, people will be able to access the critical care they need more easily and long-term recovery will be more attainable.” On #worldhealthday, meet one of our #ObamaFellows, Navdeep Kang. At a time when more than 130 people in the US are dying after overdosing on opioids every day, Nav is leading a charge to break down the siloed ways the healthcare system treats addiction. By training doctors and nurses not only to treat physical symptoms, but to also address the underlying behavioral causes of chronic diseases, his team at Mercy Health Addiction Treatment Collaborative is saving lives in Southwest Ohio.

As a young refugee in Germany, Aminata Touré didn’t see herself represented in government. To change that, she decided to run for office—and became the youngest and first black member of Parliament in Schleswig-Holstein. This weekend, President Obama is convening hundreds of civic leaders like Aminata for a conversation about how to expand their work at the #ObamaTownHall in Berlin.
