CAPE Updates: Celebrating 5 Years of Champions of Change!
This week marks the fifth anniversary of the White House Champions of Change program! In those five years, the White House has honored more than 1,000 Champions from around the country who work every day to make life better for the people in their communities. From our first event on Peace Corps Volunteers, to our most recent event on Affordable Care Act Champions, we’ve covered a lot of ground and highlighted many of your incredible stories.
In the summer of 2011, CAPE’s Executive Director Amy Rasmussen was named a White House Champion of Change for Arts Education by President Obama. Since then, she has participated in numerous conversations and events with fellow national education and arts leaders to share information and to advocate for the arts.

As the end of President Obama’s term approaches, the White House is thinking of ways to continue the dialogue between all Champions — you can join the conversation, too, by tweeting with us using #whchamps!
