President Barack Obama is set to host the first South by South Lawn—a White House festival of ideas, art and action—in early October, and A4E’s Founding Director, Rachel Preston Prinz, was selected out of thousands of nominations to attend.
Rachel will be joining other movers and shakers to take on Obama’s challenge to build towards an America that is more tolerant, fair, and full of opportunities.
On October 3, South by South Lawn is:

    Interactive: Panel discussions throughout the day will explore topics like how to make change stick with organizers who are having an impact, as well as a discussion with influencers who are using their platforms to bring about positive change. Interactive booths will encourage attendees to engage with and learn about new technologies and innovations. 
    Film: The film portion features the 3rd Annual White House Student Film Festival in association with its founding partner, the American Film Institute. Students in grades K-12 submitted more than 700 short films round this year’s theme, The World I Want to Live In. The submissions are inspiring and we’re excited to share official selections and honor young filmmakers as part of this event 
    Music: Musical performances will include well-known and emerging artists who are using their music to inspire audiences.
Congratulations to Rachel and all the nominees that have been selected to attend!
