Michelle Obama Coming to Richmond Forum in March

Posted By on Mon, Dec 2, 2019 at 4:00 AM

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is coming to the Richmond Forum on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 for "a special program to benefit speech and debate programs in the region’s public middle and high schools."

The event involves the Richmond Region Speech & Debate Initiative, which was started by The Richmond Forum in 2018. So far this school year, they have supported 19 speech and debate teams in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and Hanover, according to the Forum's website.

"We're excited that we've been able to add the Carpenter Theatre at the Dominion Energy Center as a live simulcast location," says Bill Chapman, executive director and producer for Richmond Forum, by email. "People loved that venue for seeing President Obama’s appearance at The Forum in 2017, and we love that it enables more of the community to be able to attend."

Today, individuals on the Richmond Forum's email list are being notified of any seat availability for the Obama event. So join the email list here and maybe you'll get lucky.
