Former President Barack Obama announced Wednesday his foundation will host a global summit in Chicago to promote civic engagement.
In an email to supporters, the former commander in chief said the Obama Foundation in October will bring "together hundreds of civic leaders from all around the world to Chicago for a hands-on exchange of ideas."
"This summit will be a place to share your stories, learn from one another, and then go back to your communities to lead others in the hard work of change," the email said.

President Trump has dismantle several of Obama's policies since he left office in January.
Trump and the Republican-led Congress have attempted to repealed Obamacare. Last week, Trump announced he would roll back the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program enacted by Obama in 2012, which protected hundreds of thousands of people from deportation who were brought into the country as children. Trump has also pulled the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement.
