Celebrating a Year of Champions of Change – President Obama Meets with 12 Champions across the country, Who Are Making a Difference in Their Communities. As Patience Lehrman, National Director of Project SHINE noted, the Champions program expanded the platform of her work nationally and internationally. Five months after the Champions of Change designation, she was invited as a guest presenter at a global immigrant integration conference in Hamburg, Germany where she spoke about the benefits of promoting immigrant integration through multi-sector collaboration. In addition, Mrs. Lehrman noted that her meeting with President Obama and his senior staff reinforces the fact that the Obama administration believes in ordinary Americans and the role they can play in shaping the future of our nation.
