Seria uma atitude muito ingênua esperar que as classes dominantes desenvolvessem uma forma de educação que permitisse às classes dominadas perceberem as injustiças sociais de forma crítica. Paulo Freire Frases de Sociologia

Yesterday I touched down in Alaska for a three-day tour — a trip I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. Not only because Alaska is one of the most beautiful places in our country  -- but because I’ll meet with everyday Alaskans about what’s going on in their lives, and I expect to learn a lot.

The White House, Washington
The President is touring through Alaska this week, meeting with residents of the state and seeing the effects of climate change on the ground. He's sharing what he sees along the way. Read his entry from yesterday below, and follow along with the trip here.

Yesterday I touched down in Alaska for a three-day tour -- a trip I've been looking forward to for a long time. Not only because Alaska is one of the most beautiful places in a country that's full of beautiful places -- but because I'll meet with everyday Alaskans about what's going on in their lives, and I expect to learn a lot.
Watch the President's travelogue.
Alaska is a region defined by its Native population tribes that make up a large portion of the state's population and have been here for thousands of years. People who, through their sheer ingenuity, found a way to wrangle the elements and stake out lives for themselves.
On the flight in, I had a great view of one of Alaska's most beautiful sights -- Denali.
It's a new and ancient name all at once. In fact, just today, we renamed Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America, by restoring its native name: Denali, which means "the high one."
Follow the President's trip.
Alaskans are already living with the effects of climate change.
More frequent and extensive wildfires. Bigger storm surges as sea ice melts faster. Some of the swiftest shoreline erosion in the world -- in some places, more than three feet a year. Alaska's glaciers are melting faster, too -- threatening coastal communities, tourism and adding to rising seas.
Climate change is already affecting the salmon stock that generations of Natives have relied on as an integral part of their lives. So my Administration is taking new action to make sure Alaska Natives have direct input into the management of Chinook salmon stocks. They've taken care of the salmon population for centuries and there's no reason they shouldn't now.
If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century -- changing all sorts of industries forever. This is all real. This is happening to our fellow Americans right now.
I'm looking forward to talking to Alaskans about how we can work together to make America the global leader on climate change around the globe.
And I'll be sharing my experiences with you along the way because I want to make sure you see what I'm seeing.
And when you do, I want you to think about the fact that this is the only planet that we've got -- and we've got to do everything we can to protect it.
Follow the President's trip.

Join us for the 2015 September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance

September 11 Day of Service KaBoom! President with AmeriCorps members
Dear Community Volunteer, 
We wanted to get your attention before the Labor Day Weekend, especially because making a difference is important to you.
September 11, 2015 marks the annual National Day of Service and Remembrance, a day to honor the lives of those who were lost and commemorate the spirit of compassion and generosity that followed. 
On this anniversary, we will unite in service in the same remarkable way that so many have come together for the last 14 years. The photo in this message shows the President and First Lady last year volunteering alongside members of the military and AmeriCorps members to build a playground for a Washington, DC school that lacked an outdoor area for students to exercise.
You can join us in honoring this day in three ways: 
Also, you can visit for additional resources and ways to get involved.  Thank you for your upcoming September 11 efforts in honoring the victims and their families through service. 
In service,
 Ted Miller
Chief of External Affairs
Corporation for National and Community Service
