MANILA, Philippines — Former Vice President Leni Robredo on Friday announced that she will join former United States (US) president Barack Obama in the Obama Foundation’s Democracy Forum.  

The Obama Foundation is a Chicago-based non-profit organization founded by the former US president and has various programs in leadership, scholarships and more. 


Amid the difficulties we face, democracy will always find anchorage in the hearts of our people—and it is something we must protect for our future. Excited to announce that I will be joining President Barack Obama at the Obama Foundation #DemocracyForum on November 17,” Robredo posted on her Facebook page. 


Other than Obama and Robredo, speakers like Pulitzer Prize-Winning New York Times reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones and US Representative Ro Khanna are also in the forum’s lineup. 

“The Forum will bring attention to the biggest challenges democratic institutions face today and showcase democracy in action around the world. We will bring together hundreds of emerging leaders from across Obama Foundation programs, leading experts, and practitioners who are reimagining our institutions and protecting democratic values,” the Obama Foundation said on its website.

Robredo was also previously selected as a Hauser Leader at the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School.

As a Hauser leader, she gave lectures and engaged with students.
