ASK THE PRESIDENT: Submit your question to President Obama
What questions do you think President Obama should be asked at his next press conference?
We are calling on Obama to start a new tradition to open up the White House: invite new and independent voices into the East Room by pledging to take a citizen-generated question at presidential press conferences.
To put this idea into action—and give the busy White House something tangible to work with— a broad coalition of new and traditional media are teaming up, including The Nation, The Washington Times and the Personal Democracy Forum, to begin gathering questions from you, the public. Then we are appealing to the President to call on a journalist to ask one of the most popular citizen questions at future press conferences, as explained in this magazine article, The People’s Press Conference.
You can submit your questions, in text or video; view other people’s questions; and vote for the ones you think are most important.
