For example, in 2014 he went to a Global Citizen Festival that helps end poverty and there Barack Obama had sent a lot of encouragement to the people of the world to start or continue helping because he said that “this is a battle for all of us to fight and most importantly we can win!” Barack H.

But at first, he was just an average citizen who moved to Chicago, where he pursued a job as a community organizer with a church-based group . Then later on, he worked with low-income citizens for several years in Chicago’s Roseland community and the Altgeld Gardens public housing development. The Altgeld Gardens public housing development has 97% amount of citizens being African Americans.It was a great help In order to get a better housing for African Americans returning from World War 2 on 1956.

Obama could not stand many racial and/or poverty going around that made him outraged, upset, frustrated and angry about a social injustice.

Make health insurance more affordable, for example, by expanding cost assistance based on income to lower health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs and by expanding Medicaid to all adults based on income. Improve the quality of health insurance and healthcare for example, by requiring essential benefits on all plans and rewarding hospitals for quality over quantity.
And finally by curbing costs. For example, via regulations and taxes on those who benefit the most from healthcare reform like insurers and drug companies.Barack H. Obama has participated in the community multiple ways to make the world a more equitable, sustainable and peaceful place.
